5 ideas, 5 minutes each, 5 slides each, 5 judges, 5,000 dollars
5×5 Night is a monthly event in Grand Rapids that allows 5 people to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges who decide how to award $5,000 on the last Tuesday night of every month. The third 5×5 happens tomorrow night at the Grand Rapids Ballet with an afterglow at Founders Brewery. Tomorrow night’s presenters and topics sound pretty interesting:
- Bruce Burgess â€“ Mull-it-Over
- Mick Hanna â€“ Easy Crutch
- Phil Lund – The Mars Plan
- William Stewart â€“ Compression Beehive Frame
- Charlie Wollborg – Face-to-Face > Pixel-to-Pixel
Michigan Radio has a cool interview with Rick DeVos and Bill Holsinger Robinson of Pomegranate Studios about 5×5 Night. Learn more at 5x5night.com and Pomegranate Studios.
Last month AJ Paschka got all five votes and $5000 for his very cool Weather Collage idea, but we’ll feature Landon Bartley’s more locally focused call for a Grand Rapids Sister City Window Webcam Project. You can check out all the pitches on the 5×5 channel.
