The Big Idea
Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Colorado College
- Bigger and better this year!
- Annual pitch competition for $50,000 of seed money
  with more resources and input for your idea
- Don’t miss our next event!

The Big Idea is on again, now as a strategic theme of CC and President Tiefenthaler! Again, there will be $50,000 in prize money for the pitch competition to kick start your great idea. Plus, this year we’re getting started earlier, with more resources, mentors and guidance. We've got really cool startup stories and big name speakers to compliment the Big Idea program. Also, we have a New Executive Director, Patrick Bultema ... a guy with a liberal arts background who has worked as a Venture Capitalist, is a six time startup CEO and has done both social entrepreneurship deals as well as VC backed companies.

It doesn't matter if you're a Comparative Lit, Economics, Political Science or Art major. If you're interested in innovation and the whole startup phenomenon, then there's a place for you and your ideas. Plus, we're making it easier this year for you to join up on teams, or join a big idea that's already underway.
