Open Labs’ Chris Brown and Travis Gallagher traveled to Washington DC to showcase Stagelight EDU at Microsoft Inspire, one of Microsoft’s largest partner events where thousands of innovators go to network, learn and collaborate.

Definitely a huge success for Open Labs.”

Other attendees at Inspire took to Stagelight’s accessible yet robust features, and local DC students even got to take a class on how to make beats on the software. After a short competition for “best beat”, Students each received a free copy of Stagelight EDU.

It’s great to see young people engaged and being creative with our app.”

Open Labs could not be more pleased with how the event turned out, and can’t wait to grow in our partnership with Microsoft.
