The call to action was simple: we wanted to round up the best and brightest young entrepreneurs for our first ever 99U Pop-Up School. The “Class of 2103” is an eclectic group of makers, coders, artists and more, all with a passion for getting things done. Winners received a free three-day pass to the Pop-Up School, an opportunity to lead a Round Table Talk at the event, and access to a private cocktail event at Samsung Accelerator.

Along with our friends at Samsung Accelerator, we’re happy to present the winners:
