Back by popular demand, GLI’s EnterpriseCorp hosted a 5Across pitch competition in Louisville during Global Entrepreneurship Week.  Created in 2010 by Awesome Inc. in Lexington, 5Across features five teams of entrepreneurs giving five minute pitches (with slides) to local judges at 5 p.m.  The winning team receives a $500 cash prize and bragging rights as the 5Across-Louisville champion!

Congratulations to

Want to just attend? The cost is (you guessed it) $5 and includes refreshments. 

What’s this about superheroes?  Starting a business takes strength, courage, and lightning-fast reactions (to market changes, customer needs, product pivots, etc.).  Not to mention, sometimes folks may look at you like you’re from another planet!  We’re celebrating all of those stellar traits in startups at this 5Across – Louisville competition with a superhero theme.  Superhero swag and costumes are optional for both presenters and attendees, but highly encouraged!
