Thank you for all the incredible (and awesome!) idea submissions!

Thank you for all the submissions to Awesome Calgary Foundation!   The response to our call for awesomeness in Calgary has been impressive and somewhat humbling.  It's incredible to know that so many awesome ideas and people exist in Calgary.   Thank you for being a part of the very first Awesome Calgary grant for micro-brilliance. 

The next steps are:

  • we will notify the top 4 finalists, via email, to come pitch to us on April 28th at 6pm (venue to be announced soon but it will be in an awesome venue in an area of Calgary accessible by transit)
  • the grant winner will be awarded $1000 cash, on the spot, at the Pitch Party
  • all submitters and members of the public are invited (and encouraged!) to join us for the pitch party - awesomeness is only truly awesome when shared with others! 
If your idea is not selected as a finalist - it  doesn't mean it's not awesome, it just means that it may need a bit more work or concept development to become a true contender.  You can always resubmit for another award cycle.  The Awesome trustees are happy to chat with you about your idea after the awarding the grant. 

Stay tuned for the announcement of the exciting venue and the 4 incredible finalists!
