Infographic: The $100,000 Idea
Ketel One and GQ teamed up to celebrate their call for ideas, A Gentleman's Call: In Pursuit of an Idea that Matters. Inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of the Nolet family, founders of Ketel One vodka, the program was created to support ideas that raise society's behavior bar. Participants from across the United States submitted their ideas that exhibited the ideals of entrepreneurship, craftsmanship, and philanthropy for the chance at $100,000 to further their idea, and now it's down to five finalists. Take a look at the projects submitted by these top contenders.
Cast your vote for you favorite idea here from now to November 26.
