BIG IDEA Contest Pitch Presentation & Award Event


Dozens of emerging tech entrepreneurs and small manufacturers from Indiana, Jefferson, Clearfield, and Cambria counties recently applied to Ben Franklin’s $50,000 BIG IDEA Contest. The six finalists selected will make their pitch to a team of local judges on November 19, 2020, via a virtual Zoom Meeting. Join the BIG IDEA Contest Online Event to support your home-grown innovators. Prior to the event, attendees will receive an email with a link for the Zoom meeting. Our BIG IDEA pitch events are attended by not only the friends and family of the presenters, but also community partners, local dignitaries, economic development professionals, other startups, and even potential investors.
