Risk It: Indiana Now Accepting Pitch Submissions




Risk It: Indiana Now Accepting Pitch Submissions


Risk It: Indiana will be in Madison, Indiana on May 15, 2014 at the Venture Out Business Center. We have an open call for submissions of ideas or inventions for a chance to win $4,000 in prizes and donations.  Seven to ten brave competitors will be given 5 minutes to pitch their idea to 4 judges and an audience of close to 100 people.

Last year, we had seven competitors from inventions to cartoon characters for school age children and we hope to have the same variety this year. The audience was made up of lenders, angel investors, elected officials and the general public.
