Makeathon Challenge 
UNC-Chapel Hill’s Young Founders Institute
 
Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit and want to test a new market opportunity centered around a specific business problem?  Get your friends and make a team (3-5 people, per team). Past Makeathon challenges have included topics like designing clean energy solutions and supporting at-home learning during Covid-19. 
 
You do not need to possess any specific skills, but it is recommended to have a strong interest or background in entrepreneurship. During the event, student teams work independently throughout the day on their projects, culminating in a pitch presented to our panel of judges. Students will also have a chance to attend Skill Labs to learn entrepreneurial skills such as Marketing, Product Design, Financials and Pitching. Young Founders Institute mentors are available throughout the challenge to support you through the process.  
 

Be in touch with Mrs. Farmer by Friday, if you’re interested.

Protect others and our wildlife:

Dispose of masks responsibly!

Since the start of Covid-19 and the new widespread use of masks, there has been a big increase in disposable masks found littering natural spaces – including our own campus! With their earstrings, masks have a similar effect as the rings of plastic can and bottle holders – birds and other wildlife can become entangled in them and die ! Not only that, Covid-19 may contaminate the mask itself, so anyone who kindly picks one up to drop in the trashcan could become infected. For these reasons, French Club is asking everyone to either cut or pull off the strings from your disposable masks and toss them directly into the trash cans to prevent the spread of Covid-19 AND wildlife death

Merci beaucoup!
