Booth Launch, April 13 -15 at Excelerate Labs
Sponsored by Excelerate Labs and organized by EVC, Booth Launch is a weekend startup competition where Chicago Booth students will form teams to launch lean startups that don’t require technical expertise to validate. From April 13th to 15th, each team will have 48 hours to create a landing page, test their messaging, talk to customers, and try various creative strategies to get traction and validate their idea. On Sunday night at Excelerate Labs, we’ll have a party to share the results, award the winners, and network with the greater Chicago startup community. Tickets to enter are $20 to cover food and awards. This event is open to all UofC students and alumni. Learn more at Booth Launch.
