We're celebrating a decade of LaunchNET [with you]
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State

"Bluey, inside voice."

"ohh we're celebrating 10 years of launchnet (!)"

Yeah, you heard that right. Ten years of LaunchNET, double digits baby. The big 1-0. Here's what's coming up in celebration: events, throwbacks, galleries...all of which I need to go put together so have a great week and we'll talk more next Tuesday.

Highlights for the week include: our very own Kent State News story, grant support for artists, programming for Black Women Bosses (and just women bosses), a quick espresso pitch, tips for using Instagram, and golden retrievers.
