Rocket Hatch is partnering with Village of Promise to produce the 24Hour Generator, a unique entrepreneurship event for High School students. This weekend competition will take place March 11-12, 2016. The 24Hour Generator is part of the CO.STARTERS entrepreneur development program, which Rocket Hatch has licensed for North Alabama. The event will take place at UAH, include keynote speakers, fun workshops and will connect the students with the entrepreneurial community in Huntsville through hands-on, real business challenges.
Throughout the 24 hours, local businesses will present a problem or issue that they face to the students. The students will then form nine teams to generate entrepreneurial solutions to those problems. The teams will present their solutions in a 3-minute pitch and a panel of judges will choose which team solved their problem the best. The presentations will be open to the public, and winners will receive a cash prize.
Call for Volunteers
Due to the overwhelming response by the students and the business community, we are still looking for a few volunteers. If you want to get involved, visit the 24Hour Generator site and get involved.
