The Idea Funding Café, a recently launched social networking website that wants to connect entrepreneurs and investors, will host its first Idea Karaoke night on Tuesday, March 31st at the SouthSide Works Cinema.
"I’ve gone to a lot of networking events, but they honestly seem a little dry,” says Jason Tapolci, CEO of ABG Capital and creator of Idea Funding Café . “How can we expect Pittsburgh's innovators to cultivate their ideas if we don't provide them with a safe, comfortable, and most importantly fun environment for them to present and learn?"
Keynote speaker R.F. Culbertson, professor at Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business, Donald H. Jones Center for Entrepreneurship, will speak on the dos and don'ts of entrepreneurship. The evening will be a learning forum with an American Idol-like presenter format, Tapolci says.
The evening will kick off at 5:30 p.m. and the cost is $40 to registrants and $50 at the door. Proceeds will benefit Hair Peace Charities. The event is sponsored by ABG Capital and Focus Pittsburgh Consulting Group.

American Idol meets entrepreneurship? Do I hear nominations for the role of local Simon, local Paula, and local Randy? I could picture RF as Simon, but as for the others?
