At Startups Illustrated We are Creating Opportunities Through Entrepreneurship & Education

 

VIDEO: In an effort to redefine the value of the traditional "Hackathon", Startups Illustrated worked with  Microsoft and United Athletes Foundation to create a new type of Hackathon that creates viable opportunities for its participants, opportunities that last past the Hackathon's Demo Day. Startups Illustrated created a unique two-track 6-Week Boot Camp Program that enabled HBCU students to create Hackathon apps,  while building a viable business model for the app.  At the end of the Program, the students were invited to for a two-day Hackathon/Business Model-thon on Microsoft's campus in Redmond, Washington that culminated in a Demo Day and pitch competition.
