RECESS music + ideas festival

Good morning!


We received word of an EXCITING event called RECESS, that is taking place on Monday, April 7th and would like you to announce/blast to your students.


RECESS is a music + ideas festival that brings together successful entrepreneurs, the coolest new startups and the hottest acts in music to inspire the next generation of world changing entrepreneurs.”  RECESS is touring 7 universities and IU was chosen. Mark Cuban is the main investor. The event coordinator, Deuce Thevenow (2011 IU Kelley grad), contacted us in November and I have been advising him on venues, contacts, student clubs, etc. He is working with some others on campus so you may have already heard about this event.


The event is a 4-part experience with one part being a “pitch competition”.  Attached is a 2-slide PowerPoint: please note the 2nd slide that includes info on submitting a “Pitch Idea” (deadline to apply is March 28th). We have posted the pitch idea part on social media and will follow up with another post on the whole event when the students return back next week.  Feel free to share what we used:


·        Pitch a winning idea-win a trip to Las Vegas! IU has been chosen as one of 7 schools to participate in this 4-part event. Submit your idea by March 28th!



Please let me know if you have any questions and here is the promo video as well as the event website if you are curious for more.


Thank you,
