Once all of the presenters finished, the votes were tallied and $465 was awarded to David Durica and Make Life Fair, a local seller of fairly-traded Mayan Goods.
Ultimately, the purpose of PitchFeast is to provide seed-funding and awareness for local entrepreneurs that traditionally would not have access. Dreamapolis, the organization responsible for organizing PitchFeast, works to help urban Indianapolis entrepreneurs and start-up businesses by connecting them with critical tools and resources.
On Feb. 8, Dreamapolis will team with Big Car and other start-up design and tech innovators such as Idea Architects, IndySpectator, KA+A, The Levinson Center, SmallBox, and Verge for the event, "Revolutionize Your City: Art + Technology = Innovation." The call is simple: People with an Indianapolis-related project or program ideas that bring art and technology together will pitch their ideas for a chance to win $10,000.
