48-Hour Launch: Teen Edition, Memphis

48-Hour Launch: Teen Edition is modeled after Start Co.’s event of the same name for adults. AgLaunch + CodeCrew + LITE are joining forces to host this event to introduce high school students to agtech and entrepreneurship.

Throughout the event, teens will take their ideas and learn how to make them a reality through tech workshops, teamwork and entrepreneurial skill-building. Students are encouraged to come with ideas to form teams, but all students ages 14 to 18 are welcome to participate.

Student ideas will be presented on Friday, October 18th at 5 PM at Crosstown High. The public is welcome to attend. Judges from AgLaunch, CodeCrew, and LITE will assess student pitches and the top 3 teams will win prizes to include streaming gift cards, iPads, and AirPods.

Event registration (bit.ly/48HourTeen) is $20 for individuals or $60 for a team of five and includes meals, snacks, and a giveaway bag of cool items. Use code ‘AGLAUNCH’ for $5 off an individual registration during the month of September.
