Featuring hackathons, client shoutouts, and content strategy.
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
Spooky season is upon us, Halloween is this weekend, and my procrastination on picking a costume has finally become problematic. If all else fails, I'll just shave my head and go as Jeffrey Bezos...but if you have any ideas that require less commitment, please do share.

Have a Happy Halloween! 🎃

Highlights for this week include a brand new student profile 👀, resources for veterans who run small businesses, how to turn habits into side hustles, and a little serotonin boost.
