Liberty Lab: Be an Entrepreneur for Liberty!

Create your very own Liberty Project at this FREE event. Register Today!

We know you want to get out there and advocate for liberty - and that you've got ideas for doing it. So LOTR would like to help! At this event, you'll learn how to take your ideas for spreading liberty and launch them as for-profit start-ups or projects. Register today at www.libertystartups.com

You'll hear from experts, form dynamic teams with other liberty-advocates and entrepreneurs, get paired with mentors, and have the chance to receive $500 in seed funding and $1,500 in cash!

Teams who complete their startup or project launch over a six week period will get their chance to pitch to a 'Shark Tank' panel of investors, and possibly win the prize for best results: $1,500 in cash. 

This event is FREE and open to the public, BUT YOU MUST REGISTER! Visit  www.libertystartups.com.


**FREE APPETIZERS, LIGHT BREAKFAST & LUNCH will be provided to all attendees**



The Liberty Lab Breakdown (See complete schedule)

Friday, May 2 (6-9 PM)

Hear from keynote speaker Brian Watson, founder and CEO of Northstar Commercial Partners and the Opportunity Coalition. Social networking will kick us off at 6 pm, and free appetizers will be available alongside a cash bar. 


Saturday, May 3 (10 AM -7 PM)

Welcome back! In addition to learning about innovation and development from senior instructor Jeff Proctor of the Charles Koch Institute, participants will also get the chance to work on their project or start-up ideas and pitch them to a panel of experienced entrepreneurs for feedback before forming teams.


Sunday, May 4 (10 AM - 7 PM)

Get down and dirty: time to plan! Teams will get together to work on their project or start-ups, including planning for what they will be doing over the six week launch. Teams will be paired with coaches who are seasoned entrepreneurs to assist them with advice and mentorship along the way. At the end of the day, ten teams will be awarded $500 in seed funding to go forward with their projects.


May 5-June 13

Teams go back to life as normal while working on their projects or start-ups in their spare time. Optional weekly meetings will be held for teams wanting to meet with other teams along the way. Each team will be working with a mentor/coach during this period. Time commitments are up to each individual and can be as little as an hour or as much as ten per week. 


June 14 (1-5 PM)

After the six week launch teams will return for a final event. An individual from each team will pitch their idea and successes to a panel of investors, also referred to as our 'Shark Tank' panel. The investors will then provide an investment offer, or advice for going forward. Either way, it will be an amazing opportunity to get experience pitching your ideas and learning from the best of the best. The team with the best results (judged by an LOTR panel) will win $1,500.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
