I got on the phone with Shehmeer of HackGT's organizing team. I was familiar with their event back in 2013 (it went down in September 2014) because they pitched me for sponsorship at the seed accelerator where I worked ... over 11 months in advance of their event. The HackGT team attracting over 1000 students to their event, ran volunteering seamlessly, and event had healthy snacks, winning the nickname SnackGT. Shemeer is a triple threat who can throw events, communicate in a world class fashion (take notes!), produce electronic music, and more.
