5x5 Night - Grand Rapids, MI - Have an idea? Need funding? Present your idea for your chance to take it to the next step?

Sounds like a cool way to possibly kick-start some interesting projects:

Up to five applicants are selected each month to present. Selecting an idea for 5x5 night is based on its quality, feasibility and impact on others. (Don't be shy, good slide-fu goes a long way.)

Judges have full authority to decide which ideas will be awarded a grant and how much an idea will win. This means one idea could win $5,000, five ideas could win $1,000, no ideas win anything, or any other number of possible combinations.

Don't forget, this event is about sharing your idea and making new connections with people and other ideas. A $5,000 grant is nice, but the real reward of the evening is in sharing and socializing.

I love the idea. Innovation is the spark of the future America. If we want to be a part of it, we need programs like this. Great idea Rick DeVos. My hat's off to you.
