The Process

We start with incredible sponsors

Our events are only as good as the sponsors supporting the contestants. That's why we bring the best to play.

Our Proud List


Our team and process is second to none

Our team of experts and planners have decades of experience creating collaborative events most people only dream about.

How competition works


Our venues are as unique as the challenge itself

Every city, every venue, has a distinct strength, that's why we choose them as the place our Makers strive and thrive.

Some Past Competitions


Our competitors come from all walks of life

Because we have a team of makers on standby, any age, any skill level has a chance to win...everyone is equal.
