OLC Accelerate 2019
Celebrating 25 Years

Collaboration with a Mission

In years past, the Field Guide Program, the Technology Test Kitchen, and the Speed Networking Lounge have run as though they were completely separate programs. For the first time ever, The OLC Accelerate Mission Passport Challenge will bring together these engagement opportunities through themed, interactive challenges.

“Our goal this year is to help you make those connections, engage with those ideas, and discover those solutions more easily,” the co-chairs share in a recent blog post. “We promise fun, we promise learning, we promise interactive challenges, we promise intentional connections, and we promise the opportunity to win amazing prizes.” Make plans to join the fun!
