STEP 1: APPLY

Are you a creative or entrepreneur with a project (this includes Fish Tank contestants)? Are you looking to collaborate, share your project with the community and grow your audience? Then you’re the perfect candidate for L.I.N.C.

APPLY FOR L.I.N.C.

STEP 2: SHOWCASE

Bring your project to share at APEX. The format will be similar to a convention or craft fair, with displays set up on tables. Having a display will give you the opportunity to grow your audience, hone your skills, and gain real-world experience sharing about your project.

STEP 3: L.I.N.C.

See what projects other students are working on, gain inspiration for your own pursuits, and find collaboration partners who can help you reach success.

Apply for L.I.N.C. if:
  • You are coming to APEX
  • You already have a product or service (not merely a concept)
  • Your project is personal (e.g. no multi-level marketing services)
  • Your project is applicable to other students (e.g. not local-area, such as teaching piano lessons or running a lawn care business)
  • You have something tangible to present at the event. This can include:
    – Business cards
    – Products (example: drawings if you’re an artist)
    – A laptop with a website or graphic
    – Posters
    As long as you have something to showcase, what you choose to bring is up to you.
