The Digital Launchpad Team

Hey there, welcome to Digital Launchpad! We are the techies, design nerds, and content creators of YNCN, here to lead the digital transformation of the organization from the inside out. Within YNCN, we like to think of ourselves as our own mini tech startup - always creating and innovating, hacking out new ideas and pushing each other to learn new skills along the way. We’re a fun bunch who believe in the power of Agile, a work-hard-play-hard mindset, and last but definitely not least, karaoke. Yeah, you read that right.

Our focus this year is to look for ways in which technology can be used to improve YNCN’s internal/external processes and, ultimately, the student experience. If you have any wild ideas, pressing questions, or would just like to know more about our team, feel free to shoot us a message - we’ll be glad to chat.
