Next Competition Night -- November 29th, 6:30pm - 9pm

 

Got 5 minutes? Those with the guts might just take home the glory at our next pitching night. Once a month, we scrape together a pile of money to give away to the best idea. Want to make something? Need money for materials? Need tools? Need to learn how to make it?

Sign up to pitch your idea -- no matter what it is -- and you could win the pot, a full month's 3rd Gear membership to Gearbox, and a month's worth of classes and training (a 36,000 KSh value)!

 

This Month's Cash Prize:    TBD

Last Month's Cash Prize: 50,000 KSh

Just a brief description.

How the event actually works...

Each month, up to 7 contestants get 5 minutes each to present their idea using any means at their disposal (props, slides, etc.) to an audience of up to 30 people. This audience will be made up of individuals who have donated the prize money that month (every month will have a different prize based on how much the audience contributes). Those who have donated the prize money then vote on their favorite presentation, awarding the winning contestant all of the cash, plus a full month's membership to Gearbox and as many free classes as they can take during that month, all to help the winner get that much closer to building their dream. One month later, winners must share their progress on what they've been building.

The fine print...

All participants will be expected to agree to and abide by the terms and conditions of the competition. Please download this form, sign, and bring it with you to the event. You won't be able to pitch, win, or vote if you haven't signed it!
