TheBigIdea.com will play host to a new multi-state business plan competition starting in 2018 where every entrant will have the opportunity to build their pitch deck, business plan and crowd online. The key differentiator from other competitions is that instead of having a pool of judges decide the outcome based on their own biases or hidden agendas, contestants get feedback from their growing crowd using a gamified voting system to create
a “prediction market” to find the investible ideas!

Contestants begin building their crowd by inviting family, friends and fans to visit thebigidea.com to vote on their
Big Ideas in order to compete for the chance to raise up to $1M using regulation crowdfunding on Silicon Prairie Portal & Exchange state based portals (MN, WI, IA coming February) or on Silicon Prairie Online an SEC+FINRA approved REG-CF federal funding portal.
