Just because most of the people we hang out with tend to geek out on techy, startup stuff doesn't mean that we don't have an athletic side to us! In fact, we're going to prove to you just how jock-y we are during next First Fridays. Introducing: Entrepreneur Corner...All-Star style!
We are counting down the days to the 2012 MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City...and we know you are too! So, to help the countdown go down a bit faster, we decided to throw a baseball-inspired Entrepreneur Corner event during First Fridays. Everything you see at Entrepreneur Corner on July 6 will be baseball themed...with a startup twist!
Pitch Here, Pitch There
We are excited to throw (literally!) our first ever Pitch Here, Pitch There event at Entrepreneur Corner. On one side of our parking lot at 1800 Baltimore, we will have a machine that reads just how fast your baseball pitch is. Go ahead--give us your best throw! The fastest pitch will win a prize at the end of the night!
But that's only the Pitch Here portion. We can't forget about Pitch There, too. On the other side of the parking lot, you will have the opportunity to pitch a wacky, crazy, cool or brilliant idea to our video camera. A few of our favorite recorded pitches will win awesome prizes (including Royals tickets!). Can't come up with an idea? We'll have ideas already made for you...go ahead and try to pitch 'em! Don't be shy...we want you to pitch both ways!
A Grand Slam App: intevli
During the All-Star Entrepreneur Corner, we are going to spotlight a brand new First Friday-focused app, intevli. intevli is a free interactive event mapping app created specifically for Kansas City's First Fridays. The app will help you explore what art events, shopping deals, restaurants and entrepreneurial meetups are going on during First Friday (not to mention, where to park!). Help us launch intevli right, check out the app and give your feedback during the launch party from 6:00-9:00pm on July 6.
Put Me in, Coach!
Be sure to swing by Entrepreneur Corner not just to pitch, but to capture a First Fridays memory! Life Equals (as always!) will bring their baseball-inspired photo booth and will be snapping pictures all night long.
A baseball game wouldn't be complete with pump-up music blaring while the batters approach home plate. That's why we're featuring two (possibly three!) great DJs from the Kansas City area (and guess what? They're Think Big employees!). Be sure to request a song from DJs Bobby Miller and Max Gall (especially if it's Hey Now, You're an All Star by Smash Mouth. That's a given.).
And if that's not enough, Think Big will also provide great ballpark munchies absolutely free! With three kegs to tap courtesy of Boulevard Brewing Company, we promise that your Entrepreneur Corner experience will be a delicious one--you'll feel like you're in the ballpark!
We can't wait to see you during our All-Star Entrepreneur Corner event! The event will take place at 1800 Baltimore in Kansas City from 5:00-9:00pm. To learn more, visit our Entrepreneur Corner Facebook page or give us a call at 816-842-5244.
