Event Details

Drop by for free pizza, drinks (beer for those 21+), serious fun and camaraderie at the Work Differently Ignition Pitch Night, hosted by Elance at 1871 on Thursday, August 8.

What's a Work Differently Ignition Pitch Night? Several entrepreneurs submitted proposals to pitch their ideas to a crowd of excited onlookers and our esteemed panel of judges and 10 of them have been selected and confirmed to compete.  Come cheer them on, get inspired, network and have fun!

The 10 competing presenters will each have 3 minutes to pitch their ideas, followed by a 3-minute Q&A and 4-minute feedback session from the judges.  Those with the best concepts (as determined by our judges) will win prizes including up to $1,500 Elance credit for hiring online freelancers.

Each ticket includes entry to the event, pizza, beverages and your first drink on us afterwards at The Grid (851 W. Hubbard) from 8pm-10pm (21+)
