Final IdeaBounce this semester

This just in from the Skandalaris Center: “you are invited to attend the final IdeaBounce® on Thursday, May 15 at 6 p.m. We welcome everyone at our FREE IdeaBounce® events, to pitch an idea, to hear ideas from others, or perhaps to get inspired to pitch at the open mic. Since this is our last for the school year, we’re extending the deadline to post your idea, but also will plan to have more time on the agenda for the open mic pitches, AND we’ll award a $100 prize to an open mic bouncer.”

Winners are selected based on three simple criteria with the goal of encouraging ideas and getting people to start talking and get connected to resources: the clarity of the presentation, the passion of the presenter, and his/her request to help.

Get a sneak peak of what a bounce is like here, then please join us on Thursday.
If you have an idea and want a guaranteed spot on the program, post your idea to by 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 13.

If you want to come to see and hear other bouncers and take your shot at the open mic, JUST SHOW UP!

Time: Registration at 5:30 Pitches at 6 p.m.
