Big Idea Blender: September 16th
We've all wondered how great business ideas happen and even more important, how do they get one off the ground? Now there's a chance to find out how others are making big ideas happen. Think "Night at the Improv" meets "American Inventor."
The Big Idea Blender is an experiment kicking off on September 16th at 7:00pm at Milkboy Coffee in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
Big Idea Blender is variation on a theme, in all honesty. It takes its inspiration from events like Google's Ignite, TED Conference and IdeaBlob.com by Advanta. It hopes to bring together entrepreneurs and creative business thinkers to share ideas, frustrations and victories all in the a hope of inspiring the assembled group of people to greater heights.
It follows the format of "an open mic night for entrepreneurs" and uses a rapid fire five-minute presentation style to keep things moving and the juices flowing. If you're interested or know someone who is, let me know and I can fill you in. The goal is to sign up 8-10 presenters for the night, and we've got the first two in place, so please make contact soon if you're into hitting the stage.
Our hopes are that this grassroots, coffeehouse style of event makes it easier to do it more often and get more entrepreneurs on-stage to share their stories with other like-minded trailblazers. The event is free but you need to register, and delicious Milkboy coffee and noshables will be on sale all evening.
