Does someone have a 'get out of jail free' card?
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
In case you guys couldn't tell, the theme of this years Elevator Pitch is Monopoly. Only aesthetically though, leave that aggressive competitiveness at the door. We're going for chill and supportive competitiveness here.

Highlights for the week include: Elevator Pitch (come win some money), Improv Your Pitch (sell yourself on the fly), The Pitch (October is pitch month apparently), SkyHack (you know we can't stay away from the hackathons), and job opportunities (kent say no to that, can ya?)
