Pitch & Potluck Summer

June 23, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Begin the conversation that could change the world.
Curious about Social Enterprise? Have an idea or a problem in search of some feedback? Hungry for spirited conversation about how to use business to create change?

Join us on Thursday, June 23rd for a casual Pitch and Potluck. 6:00 – 8:30 Throw your pitches, ideas, or conversation topics into our community bowl after you grab a drink. We’ll spend the next hour drawing randomly and discussing with the group in 10-minute increments.

After that it’s a free-for-all of food and conversation! Meet your cofounders, get inspired, solve somebody’s problem, or expound on your great idea while you break bread with a great community of social entrepreneurs. We’ll provide beer, wine, and a main dish. You’ll bring a dish to pass (appetizer, side dish, or dessert). Sharing is caring! Or you can pony up a little more for some catered treats.

Who can come to this event?
ANYONE! This event is wide open to the public and anyone who is interested in business, community, and finding business solutions to community problems.

What kind of pitch are you looking for?
We don’t want to limit your imagination! But, we welcome folks (who are selected at random) to pitch their business ideas, their existing business, a problem they have but don’t have a solution for, a question for the community, or even a topic starter.
When we say social enterprise we are referring to how will your idea contribute or create value for your broader community (or even the world!). You idea doesn’t have to have this impact, but we will be curious and help you come up with ways it could have impact!

What does my ticket get me?
All tickets will include access to the event, beer/wine, and we will provide the main protein and a couple of side dishes for dinner.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is parking on the street along Brush and Gratiot. Also, there are parking lots next to and adjacent to Bamboo.

What can/can’t I bring to the event?
If you have purchased an $10 ticket we are hoping that you will bring a dish to pass. We are aiming for 20-40 people at the event, but please do not feel pressure to cook/bring something for that many. Side dishes, appetizers, or desserts are all great things to bring.
