You're on your way to achieving technological enlightenment. Your wares can go hard- or soft- at any time. You manage the front and back-ends (blindfolded), fix fatally crashed servers, slam particles, reprogram the Matrix, and switch-out busted flux capacitors...and all that before class on Tues.
Ended $40.00 $0.00
Marketing Guru
You make difficult easy to understand and know the low-down across campus. Your word-smithed posts and presentations enliven the textures, temperatures, and temperaments of your fellow students' psyches. A masterful communicator brought to life at the mention of handles and hashtags, analytics and inbound marketing, outreach and networking, you are.
Ended $40.00 $0.00
Artster (Artist + Hipster)
Creative monster. // Makes and sees art everywhere. // Graphic designer (and performers/writers/directors, video producers, photographers, data visualizers, music-makers). You have mystical visions and cause cosmic vibrations
Ended $40.00 $0.00
Quantz, Fin-addicts, & Data Mongers
You Excel at getting SASsy and stay in shape by crunching numbers - that is, after leading daily regression therapy sessions. Plaid has nothing on the patterns you've observed within the wilderness of rustic data mountains. Excel whizbangs, stats cats, cavalier accounting/finance types, and hot financial models compile here.
Ended $40.00 $0.00
The Aspiring Professional
You did more than stay at a Holiday Inn last night. You're excited, yet skeptical, to see what all this startup hype is about. Aspiring lawyers, doctors, consultants, accountants, analysts, mad scientists, and educators follow this light.
Ended $40.00 $0.00
Social and Anti-Social Impacters
You are anxious to bend sustainable business models around humanity's social ills and ails. Here's the ticket for conscious capitalists, change-makers, and do-well-do-gooders...and apparently their arch enemies. #OccupyScramble?
Ended $40.00 $0.00
You may have a "particular set of skills" that do not fit any (or span all) of these bills. Perhaps you are the 007 of the Boston student empire - which will eventually come to dominate the world. Identify yourself with this ticket.

At the StartUp Scramble, you'll prototype new ventures, attend rapid skill-building sessions (business, legal, and tech), and hear founders' startup war stories. Also, find new ways to leverage your student status to launch your startup ideas and connect with internship and job opportunities. Be sure to plan to stay the entire weekend.

BONUS: Attendees receive 3 months of online finance training from the industry leader Wall Street Prep (a $40 value #win) and access to Goodwin Proctor's legal resource hub for startups (#doublewin).


The StartUp ScrambleTM University Open takes place February 10-12th, 2012 and is open to Boston's student startup community: Full-time students currently enrolled in accredited college or university programs within the greater Boston area. Register asap. It's going to be action-packed and space is limited.

Stephen DouglassYoung Impact's Stephen Douglass is known for organizing impromptu breakdance battles and his masterful ability to focus teams to get amazing work done in high-pressure situations. Stephen's engaging, fun-loving, and brutally straight-forward facilitation style has been referred to as delicious "secret sauce."

Stephen launched a youth center outside of Scranton, PA (yes, The Office) at 16 with a group of rogue teens. He sought to curb underage drinking in the community after his friend died in an underage drunk driving accident. Since then, he's founded multiple startups, worked in investment banking and distressed private equity, and consulted for a number of for- and non-profits. Stephen continues to advise students and student ventures within the Young Impact network, host StartUp Scrambles, and rabble-rouse as a speaker and consultant across campuses and companies.

Previously, Stephen was captain of a nationally-ranked NCAA gymnastics team. He enjoys being coerced into flipping for crowds of rowdy Scramblers. After living on the road for the better part of a year, he's found a new home at MassChallenge courtesy of Babson's Blank Center and attends Babson's MBA program. You can follow Stephen's adventures @YoungImpact.
