Did you see that?
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
Can you guys believe last weeks newsletter? I mean don't get me wrong, I'm all for making a statement but jeeeez that was kinda pushing it*

Highlights for the week include: IdeaLabs - an opportunity to earn some funding and win even more!, pondering, a collab with KentLingua, a financials workshop, and a happy hour 🧃

*Editors Note: ignore the dramatics, there was no statement because there was no newsletter. I was sick and watching The Grand Budapest Hotel.
