This message is brought to you by our partner, Ketel One

Ketel One is teaming up with GQ to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit. If you've got an idea for positive impact, submit it to A Gentleman's Call: In Pursuit of an Idea that Matters. The winner will receive $100,000 to launch the proposed plan.

A Gentleman's Call is inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of the Nolet family—founders of Ketel One vodka—which has been carried through for 11 generations. They created the program to support ideas that raise society's behavior bar. Ketel One has designated three cultural counselors to lead the campaign: Ian Somerhalder, actor and philanthropist; Carlos Ponce, actor; and Adam Garone, co-founder and CEO of the Movember Foundation.

Ideas can be as grand as you can think up, as long as it's implementable and exhibits the ideals of entrepreneurship, craftsmanship, and philanthropy. Ideas for projects can be submitted here from now through July 29.

Following the end of the submission period on July 29, the five ideas that 1) best exemplify a higher standard of thinking and living, and 2) successfully personify a modern gentleman will be chosen. Voting will open across the country to decide the $100,000 winner from the five finalists.

If you think you have an idea that will answer A Gentleman's Call, submit it here, and it may just become a reality.
