Did somebody say...microgrants?
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
Lol sorry for being late, I was stuck in the quantum realm and time gets real silly in there. My man Chidi Anagonye was in the new Ant-Man movie and it might've been my favorite part.

On another note, can someone explain to me why Mr. Electric from Sharkboy and Lavagirl was in this movie...seriously, what was with that. 

Highlights for the week include: a pitch competition to win up to $4,000, microgrants are baaack, workshops every entrepreneur needs 📲 🌯 📸, a fellowship for recent grads, cracking the TikTok algorithm, and a quick little survey.
