PitchFeast is a crowdfunding dinner, which serves as an innovative fundraising program for small businesses, under-represented entrepreneurs and creatives. It is a community meal in which a ticket gives you not only food and fellowship but also the opportunity to FUNdraise for a creative, Indianapolis idea. PitchFeast welcomes all kinds of creative types for a unique crowd-sourcing competition that leverages the power of the community to fund innovative ideas.
Attendees pay a nominal entry fee and that fee provides them with dinner, beverages and one vote. Guests then hear the innovative ideas of locally-based entrepreneurs. Each entrepreneur is given 3-5 minutes to pitch their ideas and concepts to an audience who will then vote for the one they like the most.
