WHAT IS CARDSTART?
CardStart is UoL's own version of a startup competition! It is a 48-hour event where University of Louisville students come together to form interdisciplinary teams to brainstorm and develop new technologies to solve real world problems in the healthcare sector. Teams will then pitch, Shark Tank style, to a panel of judges who will decide which four teams will progress to the finals in Spring 2021!
