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!
We had an excellent pool of applicants
and will be reaching out to the selected companies shortly.  


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!  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.

Tremendous thanks to Presenting Sponsor


for sponsoring AND hosting this event!
