George Hacks featured in “The New GW Innovation+Entrepreneurship Lab Opens”
George Hacks’ new headquarters in the GW Innovation+Entrepreneurship (GW I+E) Lab at MakeOffices was highlighted in GW Today, the university’s official online news source.
“Without a dedicated office space, the leaders of the interdisciplinary student organization George Hacks have met and organized the group’s annual medical hackathons wherever they could since its inception nearly two years ago. But recently the group has found a home on the seventh floor of the Shops at 2000 Penn building in the George Washington University Innovation+Entrepreneurship (I+E) Lab, a new on-campus student co-working space.”“The New GW Innovation+Entrepreneurship Lab Opens,” GW Today
George Hacks is one of the first student groups to participate in OIE’s Innovator Access Program, which gives vetted students and student groups free dedicated desks and 24/7 access to the I+E Lab.
The article, which focuses on the beginnings of the new student co-working space, features our director, Caitlyn Pratt, who explained how the George Hacks team utilizes the office.
