Start Garden is getting out of the building and into the neighborhoods to find new entrepreneurs. 5x5 Night, Michigan’s most open pitch competition, hits the road for 2016!
The rules are simple: 5 presenters have 5 minutes and 5 slides to pitch in front of 5 judges for a $5,000 grant.
Each venue has its own host committee that selects the final five presenters and the judges. Visitors to 5x5night.com may vote on ideas. Tallies are considered in the decision process but final selection is at the discretion of the host committee.
