Bring Your Big Ideas To Boulder

Do you have a big idea that will change the world for the better? Do you have the support you need to bring it to life? If you answered yes to the former and no to the latter, you’ll want to be in Boulder on August 19th. That’s the day budding social entrepreneurs will have five minutes on stage to pitch their concept to Alex Bogusky and crew.

COMMON, launched in Janurary 2011 by Alex and Ana Bogusky, Rob Schuham and John Bielenberg, is currently accepting applications to present through next Friday, July 22nd. COMMON is looking for seasoned entrepreneurs, young guns, MBA’s, college dropouts – they don’t really care about credentials, only that your idea is bold enough to make our planet a better place. Winning ideas will receive funding and incubation.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
