Big Idea Hastings - Idea Deadline!

Big Idea Hastings is back! Ideas must be submitted on by 5pm on Tuesday, October 23rd.

What ideas are we looking for?

We are looking for BIG ideas. We want you to be creative, innovative, and think about how this idea could thrive not only in our community, but maybe even beyond Hastings.

You don't need a business plan to submit your idea. Your idea could be in infant stages and you want to see what others think or it could be at maturity and you just need a little seed money to get your idea off the ground!

Your idea can be in any of the following categories:
▫️ Retail
▫️ IT / Tech / Web Services
▫️ Product Invention
▫️ Food Service / Food-Related
▫️ Service / Miscellaneous

What is Big Idea Hastings?

It's like Shark Tank, but LIVE! The finalists will participate in the Big Idea Hastings: Live Pitch Event on November 6th where they will have 2-minutes to pitch their idea in front of a panel of community judges and audience. Each pitch will be followed by a series of questions. Top 5 will receive a list of community resources to help them continue their idea. Cash prizes for Top 3!
