The debut of Collab:QuickPitch in August

We love the long, slow, artful project presentation at Collab. Really we do. But sometimes you want a whole lot of Collab. And you want it good and fast.

Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

Starting in August, we will be adding a new feature to every Collab…” QuickPitch.”

How does it work?

  • You have 3 minutes. This can be a soon-to-launch campaign. A funding campaign in mid-stream. An established plan. Or just a hair brained idea you’ve been bouncing around. It does not need to be on Kickstarter or another funding platform. We welcome crazy ideas floating around your head.
  • We suggest 1 minute to present and 2 minutes to answer questions from the judge or audience.
  • After everyone is done, the audience lets their favorite be known via cheers, jeers, and possibly rotten vegetables
  • The judge(s) weighs the audience’s opinions carefully…then dutifully ignores them and decides a WINNER
  • The WINNER gets (1) free hour of crowdfund or marketing consulting with the experts at Crowd Fund a Dream
  • The WINNER gets one round of Collab love…meaning we stick them on our websites, give them shout outs, and maybe even build them a parade float*
  • And finally…it is all about the $$$. The winner gets their choice of a 100% pledge of that night’s proceeds (it isn’t a lot, but you get it all) to their Kickstarter (or equivalent Crowdfunding campaign) or 20% of the proceeds flat out.

*Parade float building is on a parade by parade basis


Just bring your pitch, any media you need to give the pitch (we have a projector and can run all standard media) and arrive no later than 7:45 p.m. Tell the door person you have a QuickPitch to give and he/she will add you to the lineup!
