IN A FLASH: Pitch and Ponder

On April 25, the DI Hub hosted the Pitch and Ponder Showcase, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.  This unique event presented a tabling/vendor opportunity for Kent State's student entrepreneurs to network, meet new customers, increase their audiences and spread the word about their businesses. 

Each entrepreneur with a product or service was given a table to customize to represent their brand. There are several Pitch and Ponder events each year, presented by LAUNCHNET Kent State, through Kent State University Libraries
