What is the Marketplace of Ideas?

Website graphic
As an entrepreneur, I’ll bet every time you meet someone new, you give your elevator pitch. At any networking event and conference, even at yoga or over cocktails in your living room.

At Social Venture Institute, you get the chance to share your idea or venture with a room of people who want to see you succeed.
In SVI’s Marketplace of Ideas, attendees (that means you!) have the opportunity to stand up and speak up about what they do. Your business. Your needs. Your ideas.
Take to the stage for 90 seconds to tell us about what you do. No need to be nervous– you’ll be standing in front of the most supportive and loving group of humans you can find.
It’s a rapid-fire line of smart and brilliant people, each with 90 seconds to shine, using any creative, fun and crazy methods you want.
You can use:

  • Props and costumes
  • Music, singing and sounds
  • Storytelling
  • Comedy
  • Quiz and game show themes
  • Magic tricks
  • Friends (who are also at the conference)
  • Sparkles and ribbons
  • Anything in your imagination

Join us at Social Venture Institute Hollyhock on Sept 11 – 15, 2019!
