What is 5 Across?

5 Across is an informal gathering of entrepreneurs, investors and service providers from Lexington and Ashland KY. Each Five Across meeting features presentations from local entrepreneurs who pitch their idea to a panel of local judges.

5 Across is a Lexington based business pitch competition for entrepreneurs. Awesome Inc and the BBDP joined forces in 2010 to launch 5 Across in an effort to encourage entrepreneurs to share their business ideas and take action. Since 2010, 5 Across has helped over 120 entrepreneurs gain valuable feedback, connect with key mentors, and earn over $37,500 in prize money!
