Pitching the Power of Place

What do Oslo and the Research Triangle have in common? 

M&Ms! - as in Mariela and Michelle, our CEO and COO respectively, who are pitching in both of these amazing places this week! We've been interrupting your regularly scheduled (awesome placemaking) content to bring you lots of news lately - we hope you don't mind. There's just a lot of excitement to share! Find out how you can be a part of these pitches below!

First, Mariela will be wrapping up our time at the Katapult Accelerator program in Oslo this week. She's pitching twice! See below for details:

  1. Katapult's Demo Day - which is being streamed live - at 530pm Central European Time (CET) (6 hours ahead of the East Coast) TODAY! Monday, May 14th (so you guys in the US can totally join later this morning!). I'm up toward the end - so probably around 615pm CET.
  2. Katapult Future Fest on Wednesday, May 16th at 2pm Central European Time

Mariela will be sharing our most recent exciting updates. Watch out, spoiler alert!
