    Overview

    we see ideas that work.
    we connect people to ignite work.

    May 22nd, 2019 | 5:30pm - 8:30 P.M.

    SPARK Hollywood is an event that promotes innovation and entrepreneurship for local startups, entrepreneurs, small businesses and inventors in Hollywood and South Florida. The event has three main objectives:

    (1) provide a competition for selected contestants to pitch their idea or invention to a panel of judges to win prizes.

    (2) provide an opportunity for start-ups to showcase their ideas, inventions and products during a “trade show” open to the public.

    (3) provide an opportunity for early-stage entrepreneurs to learn about resources available in the City of Hollywood and the rest of the South Florida region while networking with potential investors and experts who may help start their ventures or grow existing endeavors.

    There are no “typical applicants” for SPARK Hollywood. Entrepreneurs and ideas come from every walk of life, every industry sector, and every age group. Contestants can be individuals or a team developing an idea. Some entrepreneurs may have a new business which is already marketing and selling while others may only have a business concept and are working to get to market. Ideas and innovative products may be at any stage of development from creation of concept to a finished product or business.

    SPARK Hollywood will be held on Thursday, May 22nd, 2019 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm in Downtown Hollywood at Circ Hollywood Hotel. Selected contestants will have the opportunity to give a three-minute presentation of their innovative idea/business to a panel of judges comprised of local community leaders, investors, and professionals. The judges will select the contestants whose ideas will be awarded first, second, and third place prizes based on a variety of criteria.

    What’s included :

    • Cash and In-Kind prizes awarded to 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place Winners.
    • Network with like minded individuals.
    • Meet sponsors who can help you bring your idea to life (not to mention a few deep pockets that are looking for investment opportunities!).
    • Did we mention the music and cash bar?
