Small Sharks in the Big Lake…9th Annual Giving Back Event

Date/Time:       11/07/2018       5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Rockford Construction

Non-Profits Swim with Corporate Sharks

Sponsors: Comerica,  Herman Miller, Richard M. & Helen DeVos Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation GVSU

It isn’t our intent to throw local Grand Rapids nonprofits to the sharks but conversely, to introduce them to our own Lori Greiner and “Mr. Wonderfuls”. Select nonprofits will pitch the tank for funding consideration for their organizations. The WISE audience and our carefully selected corporate panel will hear each non-profit’s unique pitch. Our panelists will then ask questions and offer guidance to increase each organization’s chance for current and future funding

WISE Attendees will be introduced to local non-profit organizations who are making a difference in our community. Event sponsors have offered financial donations for funding to each of the nonprofit organizations the panel selects. In honor of the annual WISE Giving Back event, the audience will also vote for their favorite. The selected audience favorite will receive $5 from each event ticket sold. Join us for this fun and giving event!

Are you, or do you know a non-profit who would be interested in pitching?

Please read the eligibility and expectations for finalists.
