X Factor Grants support entrepreneurial and innovative ideas to advance the arts and creativity in Santa Clara County—ideas that are relevant and effectively presented to a panel of non-artists. It is similar to R&D, allowing organizations and artists to develop and test new programs and messages that resonate with potential donors and audiences while amplifying a mission. The entire program—Pitch Camp, X Factor Arts 2016 Finals, and X Factor Grants—is an investment and professional development opportunity. SVCREATES’ goal is two-fold: to help organizations strengthen messaging (pitch training) and to help organizations experiment with new programs (X Factor Grant). At the X Factor Arts 2016 Finals, nine finalists will present a final pitch to a panel of entrepreneurs, and the public is welcome to attend. The top four pitches will be awarded $10,000 grants to support the delivery and execution of the idea or concept.
