Pitch Night 2016 Winners


We are pleased to announce that Diana Fairbanks, Micki Berg, and Tony Anderson will be joining us on the main stage on May 11, 2016!

Our twenty pitch speakers did an amazing, inspiring job on stage Monday, February 29th! We extend our gratitude for their diligent preparation, and for sharing their “ideas worth spreading.” Over 400 people attended, filling NMC’s Milliken Auditorium to capacity. We felt that the evening was well received, and we plan to hold a “pitch night” again next year. Recall that over 70 applications were received to make a pitch. In addition to being a great event in and of itself, Pitch Night is also how three speakers were selected to take the stage at our TEDxTraverseCity event on May 11, 2016. Thank you to our audience and panel of judges for taking part in the selection process. We look forward to May and more “ideas worth spreading.”
