It is recommended, that at least one team member has a Github account. You can create one for free if you don't already have one.
Can Mentors and Organizers Participate in Events, and How Are They Judged?
We encourage everyone to participate including our team members as it is a great way to get a better understanding of the process, industry, and community; however, we do have a policy in place whereby teams with our own members of staff will be excluded from the judging & award process.
Of course, if a member of staff builds the next big thing, we may even invite them to next steps but then of course they then will no longer be a lablab member of staff if they chose this path. This is all done as we are passionate about what we do as a business and always encourage our staff to express that passion for the industry.
