  1. Each participant will be algorithmically assigned to a team.  Teams will be given approximately 3 6 weeks to take an idea from spark to boom.
  2. Each team will be assigned an experience entrepreneur as a mentor
  3. The resulting creations will be presented and evaluated by a crack team of successful entrepreneurs, faculty professors, and a grandma.
  4. Fame and fortune will follow.

    Any updates on how soon we will be starting?
    Has it started to fill up enough?

    Anything we can do to prepare?

    The first groupings are nearly completed and we anticipate beginning Launch It #2 sometime within the next couple weeks (perhaps, even next week).

    To prepare you can be brainstorming about which ideas you would like to pursue with your group.

    All suggestions will be incorporated — we will assign an experienced mentor for each to meet with.
