We're celebrating 10 years this month!
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
Happy Tuesday, everyone. It's officially October and I'm having mixed feelings about it. Don't get me wrong, I love the fall vibes and I'm thrilled about the "I'm dead" skeleton memes...but this also means deadlines are approaching and stress levels are sky-🚀ing.

Highlights for the week include: the LaunchNET 10 Year Celebration, money for your business, a post-grad fellowship opportunity, feeling refreshed (especially after this retrograde 🥴), and an update on Ned.
