What is a Work Differently Ignition Pitch Night Event?
It’s where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to a crowd of rowdy onlookers (yes, beer will be served) and our esteemed panel of judges.
If your proposal is deemed presentation worthy (only ten will make the cut) you’ll get 1 mic, 5 minutes and 20 slides to pitch your idea. Those with the best ideas (as determined by our judges) will win Elance credit for hiring online freelancers: $1,500 for 1st place, $1,000 for 2nd place and $500 for 3rd place.
Uh, can you give me a little more to go on here?
The Work Differently Ignition Pitch Night Event is a quick, spirited competition between 10 bright minded geeks to decide who has the best idea.
OK I’m listening now. What’s the dealio?
You submit an idea you want to discuss, and if you’re chosen, you’ll grab the microphone and present your idea to those in attendance and our panel of judges. You get 5 minutes and up to 20 slides to present your brilliant idea.
What sort of ideas are you looking for?
We’re pretty open to ideas. It can be a business you want to start, a mobile app you think the world would love, a snowboard that goes uphill, a way to time travel, or whatever is the next great idea.
What’s in it for me?
If your proposal is deemed presentation worthy (only ten will make the cut) you’ll get 1 mic, 5 minutes and 20 slides to pitch your idea. Those with the best ideas (as determined by our judges) will win Elance credit for hiring online freelancers: $1,500 for 1st place, $1,000 for 2nd place and $500 for 3rd place. Judging criteria will be provided before hand if you are selected!
Why attend if I’m not presenting?
It’s a blast, literally. You’ll enjoy the show and get caught up in the excitement. We’ll provide a refreshing beverage to wet your whistle.
The Work Differently Ignition Pitch Night Event is free to attend and present. See you there.
