Over 50 entrepreneurs put their ideas on the wall Tuesday night, all in the hopes of winning the Innovation Market's $5,000 top prize.
"Sober Drive" gets you and your car home safely after a night of drinking. Log onto "Eat Sioux City" and you'll find a directory of Sioux City restaurants.
Those were just some of the ideas tacked on the wall at this year's Innovation Market.
Dusty Davidson, of Silicon Prairie News, Tuesday's key note speaker said, "Anything where you can get ideas out, these ideas that maybe would die on the kitchen table. These are ideas that somebody now puts on a wall and gets feedback on. It's fantastic."
And nobody knows that more than last year's winner, Chef Paul Seaman who launched his innovation, Sprout Stream, last summer.
"Our kitchen equipment is very expensive. And so the Innovation Market allowed us to get the right oven that we needed and the right equipment so we could launch it on time," said Chef Paul Seaman.
Chef Paul made $10,000 in profits last summer, and that's including all his start up costs.
"When you see all these sensational ideas, and the ideas that people have here, you realize that your neighbors might be smarter than you thought," said Chef Paul.
And who knows, this year's winner will be Chef Paul's favorite.
"I'm really wild about the Bacon Festival. I'm voting for that," said Chef Paul.
Tuesday night, folks who attended voted for their favorite ideas. And while then they were anonymous, on March 13th, the top 5 contenders will present to the Sioux City GO board.
The winner will receive $5,000 and the runner up, $2,500.
