Anyone in the world can post ideas on the IdeaBounce® website and the network of creators, inventors, investors, business people, service providers, customers, mentors and others can begin to connect to transform ideas into reality, create value and bring inventions to market. In addition to virtual connections on the website, people meet and begin to help advance ideas at free, fun, fast-paced IdeaBounce® events. The agenda includes two-minute pitches from pre-selected idea "bouncers," the announcement of campus and community winners, a reception for all and a private lunch for the winners and judges only. All are welcome to hear ideas, and events typically include an "open mic" portion. Judges represent venture capital firms, incubators, faculty, and other local entrepreneurs. They select winners based on the clarity of the presentation, the passion of the presenter and the request for help-as the purpose of the event is to get people to connect and help each other. Winners receive $100 plus an invitation to lunch with the judges the week following the event.
