Pitch Opportunity at 5X5 In Detroit

By Amanda Lewan on January 4th, 2016 / Comments

Five judges, five pitches, and a $5,000 prize will be available at 5X5 Night in Detroit.

The event is hosted by the Michigan House, an initiative of Creative Many. The house has traveled to large conferences like SXSW, showcasing Michigan’s talent, and is coming to Detroit. The pitch competition will be on January 13th, with one winner taking home a $5,000 grant award.

Open request for ideas include ones that demonstrate how people in Michigan can work and play together.

• How might we get Michigan people visiting cities as if they were popping over to a different neighborhood?
• How might we throw a festival which is activated across the entire state?
• How might we squeeze everything amazing about this state into one space or one night?

Submit ideas by noon, Jan 7, to www.5x5night.com

Best of luck if you’re pitching your idea! Check out our Michigan funding sources for other pitch opportunities, grant awards, and funding sources.
