WHAT: LaunchME! The lunch gathering that’s all about YOU.
Do you need some feedback, a focus group, or a new set of eyeballs? We all need a little help from our friends, and that’s what the Launch Me Lunch is all about! Get feedback on your latest design, pitch, presentation, product, idea, that you would like to share with your fellow Accelerate mates.
You get center stage for up to 20 minutes. Ideally you’ll spend about 10-15 minutes pitching your idea, and then get feedback from your peers for 5-10. This is an awesome opportunity to get live feedback and discussion around something you’re working on from peers and mentors.
Our goal is to start at 12:05 and we ask that everyone stay for all presentations to be part of the feedback process.
Come on out to share, help, and collaborate!
