Overview:

On April 2nd, we are hosting a civic incubator pitch night, where we will be having 5 people pitching their ideas that they believe will make Valparaiso better, and that they are willing to implement themselves. The audience will vote for their favorite idea and the winner will be awarded prize money to implement their plan.

We are asking that anyone who wants the opportunity to pitch their idea at this pitch night fills out the survey below, giving us the information we need to understand the idea you have.

We will be having a small panel of judges choose who from the submissions will move on to the main event Pitch Night.
