Never underestimate the power of a free coffee and a giant inflatable tent!

It was a typical cold February day outside Trinity's Berkeley library and right next to Trinity's historic centre and Book of Kells.

After sourcing an inflatable tent worthy of an appearance in Big Hero 6, the interns geared up in their newly arrived LaunchPad jackets, armed with a coffee in one hand and swag in the other, they were now ready to get some sign ups! 

After a few moments, a crowd quickly started to build, understandably it's hard to ignore a giant white inflatable monstrosity! The curious students were then welcomed by our team with a good morning coffee and a great introduction to Blackstone LaunchPad's on-campus support for student entrepreneurship and innovation.

Hats off to the interns for doing a great job on the day, they got over 100 sign ups that morning, and many more promising to sign up their entrepreneurial friends in the coming days. Not bad for a cold morning before reading week! 

We promise not to subject you to the cold again! There's a free coffee waiting for you when you book a meeting with us!
