Launch Some Good
Launch Some Good is an annual weekend-long jam to help launch startups making a positive social or environmental impact in our community.
Together, participants learn about social entrepreneurship, create teams to hack the problem, test/validate their solutions, connect with subject matter experts and mentors, and pitch their business ideas to win kick off funds and prizes to launch their ideas – all in 48 hours!
If you have an interest in social entrepreneurship and a passion for a social or environmental issue, Launch Some Good is an opportunity to take action and go beyond thinking to learning, testing and pitching. It is also a chance for you to meet like-minded peers who are passionate about making the world a better place through creative and disruptive startup ideas.
