Goodie Hack: Cancer + STDs
March 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Business ideas may be a dime a dozen, but quality co-founders are worth their weight in gold. Not only will they help shoulder the burden of launching a company or project, oftentimes a keen co-founder is vital for raising capital, as investors typically like to see strong teams with differentiated skill sets. Plus, it’ll be good to have someone to bounce ideas off of and, again, help with any heavy lifting. This is even more important when it comes to solving problems around cancer and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) as these tech startups, open source projects, and digital awareness campaigns can’t afford to fail.
