Cape Cod Young Professionals in Search of the Next ‘Big Idea’ Tonight

HYANNIS – The Cape Cod Young Professionals group is seeking “Big Ideas” from the community.

The organization is inviting the public to share their big ideas for Cape Cod’s future through a special live pitch event to be held tonight at Cape Cod Beer.

Each live pitch participant will have just two minutes to present. Big Idea pitches may highlight a solution to a community challenge; share positive actions or success stories already occurring on the Cape; or propose community goals and priorities.

Following the series of live pitches, audience members will be asked to vote for their favorite Big Idea, with the top pitcher receiving a $250 cash prize.

“The inaugural Big Ideas event will take the idea of community planning and turn it on its head,” said Cape Cod Young Professionals’ CEO Lauren Barker.

“This event will move conversations about the Cape’s future out of the board room and onto a public stage where the next generation of Cape Codders can showcase their innovation and creativity.”

The event will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis and is free for all participants, whether they choose to pitch or be part of the audience.

Attendees are asked to register in advance through CCYP’s website capecodyoungprofessionals.org.
