Back by popular demand, EnterpriseCorp is hosting another 5Across – Louisville pitch competition, presented by Genscape!  Created in 2010 by Awesome Inc. in Lexington, 5Across features five teams of entrepreneurs giving five minute pitches (with slides) to local judges from 5-7:30pm.  The winning team receives a $500 cash prize and bragging rights as the 5Across-Louisville champion!

Thanks to all the great startups who applied to pitch!


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


Launching a startup is no vacation, but that doesn’t mean 5Across – Louisville can’t be!  In keeping with the lei-ed back tradition of 5Across, this event will be a Launch Luau (Hawaii 5-0…2)!  Bring your B-to-C to the sea, slip into some flip flops while boot-strapping, and shed your business suit for a Hawaiian shirt (this is startup world, after all)!  Will we find the founder of the next Hulu in a hula skirt?  Will a future Pinterest present in pidgin?  And could that entrepreneur with a ukelele have a unicorn company in their future?  You never know at 5Across!  Tropical and luau-themed swag and costumes are optional for both presenters and attendees, but highly encouraged! Mahalo! 
Bonus points–and by that we mean lavish admiration–for inventing a new product out of coconuts.
