Past winners return to compete again! 

September's 5x5 Night will be vitually.  You can stream the pitches on Facebook live. 

5 past winners will pitch their ideas for a chance to win $5,000 - no strings attached. Join us on Facebook live for September's 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.
