ShiftMich Idea Slam

What better place than here? What better time than now?

A unique event during MACUL week

Are you a Michigan educator who is ready to...

connect with others and be inspired?

If you believe in innovation in education...

Meet in Detroit!

The Idea Slam is a fast paced "pitch fest" and networking event for educators. Selected projects will be presented and attendees will vote on their favorite ideas. Winning projects will receive up to $1,000 towards their innovative educational idea. The rest of the evening is an informal meet-up with fun conversations and delicious offerings from Detroit Beer Company.

The concept of the Idea Slam was inspired by the Detroit Soup and TED Conference formats.

  • You don't need to bring anything or have any specific "ideas" to attend!

$20 includes drink ticket & appetizers. Space is limited...don't wait!

All proceeds given back to the winning educators who pitch their impactful idea!
