Register for COLLISION

$25.00 per person in advance;  $35.00 per person at the door.
Space is limited – advance registration is recommended. 

Tickets include food, drink ticket, and “$25,000” in investment cash for voting for your favorite pitches. All attendees will receive one $10,000 chip, two $5,000 chips, and five $1,000 chips to drop into the voting bucket of the ventures they want to “fund.”  Chips can be distributed across multiple ventures or used to support a single venture.  

Upon arrival, attendees may also purchase an additional $5,000 chip for $5.00 – this will provide a bit more voting power and support upcoming COLLISION events. Once the pitches are complete, the COLLISION team will tally up the investments made in each venture, and winners will be announced based on the total “investment” received.
