On November 16, Launch Chapel Hill hosted the Saturday Night After Party for Triangle Start-up Weekend. It was an opportunity for everyone involved in this entrepreneurial event to cool down and network. Startup Weekend is a global initiative that brings together passionate individuals with unique skill sets and experiences, then challenges them to turn their ideas into reality over the course of a weekend. The event had 86 participants and attracted amazing speakers and judges from Chapel Hill and surrounding Raleigh-Durham area, including Ted Zoller, UNC-Chapel Hill Director of the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, Judith Cone, special assistant to the chancellor for innovation and entrepreneurship, and Alec Guettel, co-founder of Sungevity and Axiom Law and a Social Entrepreneur-in-Residence at UNC.
