FACILITATOR\n\nOrganizer&#x2019;s will write down the title of each pitched idea, the order number, and the name of the pitcher on a sheet of paper. Once all pitches have been finished (during the 30 minutes of networking), organizers will post each idea on a wall/window and hand out 3 blank sticknotes to each participant. - These are your votes, don&#x2019;t lose them! You&#x2019;ll then have 30 minutes to place your stickynotes on the ideas you&#x2019;d like to see worked on over the weekend. You can vote for your own idea if you want, and you&#x2019;re welcome to paste all 3 votes on 1 idea or spread them out. (Note: you don&#x2019;t need to write your name on the stickynotes: it&#x2019;s all anonymous.) After the 30 minutes are up we&#x2019;ll take down the ideas and tally the votes to determine the top ideas.\n
