  • FACILITATOR\n\nOrganizer’s will write down the title of each pitched idea, the order number, and the name of the pitcher on a sheet of paper. Once all pitches have been finished (during the 30 minutes of networking), organizers will post each idea on a wall/window and hand out 3 blank sticknotes to each participant. - These are your votes, don’t lose them! You’ll then have 30 minutes to place your stickynotes on the ideas you’d like to see worked on over the weekend. You can vote for your own idea if you want, and you’re welcome to paste all 3 votes on 1 idea or spread them out. (Note: you don’t need to write your name on the stickynotes: it’s all anonymous.) After the 30 minutes are up we’ll take down the ideas and tally the votes to determine the top ideas.\n
