Gray Magazine Presents: Pitch Tank

By admin • Aug 25th, 2016 • Category: All Posts, Local Design News


Do you have a great idea for a new design product, prototype, event, or far-out concept? Send us your idea and you could win a spot on the GRAY Conversations Stage at Interior Design Show Vancouver on Saturday, September 24.

In two weeks, GRAY editors will pick the five design ideas we are most excited and intrigued by. If you’re selected, you’ll get to participate in Pitch Tank, a competition happening live on the GRAY Conversations Stage, presented by Kabuni.

In this dynamic, high-profile Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank-style program, contestants will present a rapid-fire pitch of their design-related concept, product, or event to a panel of experts who will ask compelling questions, drill for details, and offer valuable feedback. Judges (and the audience) will vote on which idea they are most impressed with, and the winner will receive a grand prize that includes coverage in the print and digital editions of GRAY, off-site mentorship from our judges, and more!

The Judging Panel:
Tessa Andrews, PR and marketing pro, co-owner of Paxson Fay
Greg Benson, entrepreneur and maker, CEO of Loll Designs
Jaime Gillin, director of editorial + content strategy at GRAY magazine
Thealzel Lee, angel investing expert, president of E-Fund
Tyson Villeneuve, event producer and brand strategist, partner at The Social Concierge

If you think you have what it takes, submit your idea by 5 pm PST on Tuesday, September 6.

In order to be selected, you MUST be available to attend Pitch Tank on Saturday, September 24 from 10:30am – 11:30am at the Vancouver Convention Centre, and give a 2-minute presentation. (Travel and lodging expenses are not provided).
