2020 UNC Makeathon Match and Mingle

January 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

If you are excited about joining the Makeathon this year but are looking for teammates or a team to join, this event is for you!

About this Event

If you are excited about joining the Makeathon this year but aren’t sure where to start, this event is for you!

The Team Match and Mingle Event is for students who:

  • Are new to everything making and/or entrepreneurship but want to get involved!
  • Have an idea or product, but need 2-4 teammates to help develop the idea (Reminder: Makeathon rules specify that teams must consist of 3-5 student members)
  • Already have a small team and momentum on a product or venture, but need additional teammates or skills on their team

This event will give you the opportunity to meet others who are just starting out with similar interests as you, and/or introduce you to existing teams who are open to adding new members with your skillsets! We will help facilitate activities that will help you get to know the other attendees on a deeper level quickly (and provide the snacks to chat over), then we’ll leave it to you to continue the connections and submit your application for the Makeathon by January 19, 2020 with your teammates.

In the meantime, check out details about the Makeathon at makeathon.unc.edu and sign up for our virtual teammate finder form to help aid in-person connections at the event!
