Every two years, Great Dames holds a pitch competition called Remarkable Ideas, where women share ideas designed to improve quality of life and community.

2018 is a competition year — and it’s time to start getting those pitches in order.

This year, the networking group is looking for ideas in health and wellness, safety and security, education, and youth. Registrants will have the opportunity to participate in two free workshops the week of Sept. 10. After the application deadline of Sept. 20, Great Dames judges will select five finalists, who will receive an intensive coaching session before delivering their final pitches at the Remarkable Ideas event at Harry’s Savoy Grill on Oct. 15. The winning individual or team will be announced Nov. 5.

The winner will receive a $25,000 prize package, including $5,000 in seed funding, mentorship, coaching sessions and business development.

This year’s theme is “Firestarters: Women with Breakthrough Ideas.” Think your idea has what it takes?
