What is 5×5?
5×5 was launched in 2013 as a way to inspire, ignite, and financially support creative and innovative ideas related to the arts. To make this happen, Indy funders have put together a platform to give anyone with a great idea the opportunity to compete for a $10,000 prize at 4 unique 5×5 events throughout the year.
How does it work?
There’s a theme to each 5×5 event. October’s theme, sponsored by Verge, is Start Up Indy and is for ideas focused on music, music education, and music technology. Submit an idea centered around this theme! If your idea is selected as one of the 5 ideas to be presented at the event, you’ll have 5 minutes to present to the 5×5 attendees and judges. If your idea wins, you walk away with $10,000 in order to implement your idea.
