Record Number of Next Big Idea Competition
Applications for 2020
The Next Big Idea Competition, our version of the popular TV Show "Shark Tank" is now in its eighth year, but 2020 marked the first year in which prize money was available -- $7,500 for first place, and $2,500 for second place courtesy of CO-OP Financial Services!
Last year we received 14 applications and with so many great ideas added a Wild Card round, giving 5 companies main stage time to give their "elevator pitch" and the audience voted for one that would move on to the finals.
With a record breaking 24 applications this year we are definitely going to continue with the Wild Card Round.
Unfortunately, for now, our April event has been postponed while we work out the details with Disney. But once we have the new dates, we'll continue with the competition.
Thank you to all that took the time to submit your great ideas!
