Guts'n'Glory Night at Gearbox -- Oct. 25, 6:30pm - 9pm
Win 50,000 KSh, a full month's membership to Gearbox, and all your classes free!
This month, we're kicking off a monthly event that could give you everything you need to get started making things at Gearbox. On Tuesday, October 25th, up to 10 contestants will have the chance to present something they want to make to an audience eager to help them build it. The winner will walk away with 50,000 KSh to use towards building their project, a full month's 3rd Gear Membership to Gearbox, and all of the free classes they can take in that time (a ~36,000 KSh value).
Money for materials, access to tools and equipment, and training how to use it -- you won't have any excuses left for not making your dream a reality!
We want to help you make great things, and it turns out, so do a lot of people in our community. The prize money for Guts'n'Glory Night will be raised from donations each month from people you know, right here in Nairobi. This month, we've raised 50,000 KSh to offer as a prize. That's 50,000 KSh you can use to purchase materials, get parts made, order components, or do whatever else you need to do in order to move your project forward.
What's the catch, you ask? The winner will be determined by the people who donate the prize. Each contestant will have 5 minutes to present their idea at the event using whatever means they have at their disposal (props, slides, or their charming personality). The audience will then vote on their favorite idea to win. Only people who have donated will be allowed to vote, so your pitch needs to win their hearts!
The competition is open to anyone, of any background or experience level. There's no paperwork, no long application form, and no prerequisites. We're making it as easy as possible to get started making things -- just fill out the form on the page below to submit your name for the event.
We also need to send out a huge thank you to the generous donors who have contributed to this month's prize! We're planning to do this every month, so if you want to get involved, just let us know!
