Join us for February's 5x5 Night in Grand Rapids at LINC Gallery on Wednesday, February 22nd!
On WEDNESDAY February 22nd, 5 creators will pitch their ideas for a chance to win $5,000 - no strings attached.
Join us at LINC Community Revitalization Gallery located at 1167 Madison Ave SE, Grand Rapids, MI, 49507 for February 5x5 Night.
There is no restriction on the type of idea a presenter can submit, but it’s important to remember this is about moving an idea forward. The event host organizes a selection committee to decide which five ideas will be presented. Visitors to the website vote on ideas they would like the host committee to select. The selected presenters explain a $5,000 step that will move the idea forward.
Presenting the ideas is only part of the night. Part two is at the reception to find out the winner. Have a glass of wine, talk about ideas. The opportunity to network is the whole reason we put on the event. Join us!
