At KC Hub, we've made it our mission to focus on innovators as opposed to entrepreneurs. Here's why that distinction is important.
"The Gigabit Challenge is focused on unique applications that are enabled by Google's first-in-the-nation 1 Gigabit Fiber network. It is a business plan competition looking for the brightest, hungriest and most passionate entrepreneur superstars who are looking to think big...with a gig."
The winners receive a 6-figure investment, tons of exposure and a vote of confidence from the likes of Google execs, VCs, successful entrepreneurs and MIT professors.
