“One man. One idea. One hundred grand.” That’s the theme behind the Ketel One / GQ contest designed for true gentlemen with an entrepreneurial drive.
Ketel One and GQ are offering gentlemen the opportunity to showcase their game-changing business ideas with “A Gentleman’s Call: In Pursuit of an Idea that Matters” contest. “A Gentleman’s Call” is a nationwide search for original ideas that will raise society’s behavioral bar. Log on to AGentlemansCall.com to enter the contest. The five ideas that best exemplify a higher standard of thinking – and living – will be consider for the grand prize. Once a grand prize winner is chosen, Ketel One will invest $100,000 to turn the winner’s idea into a reality.
To provide some inspiration for “A Gentleman’s Call,” Ketel One and GQ have brought on actor and philanthropist Ian Somerhalder, self-made musician and actor Carlos Ponce, and co-founder and CEO of the Movember foundation Adam Garone, to serve as spokesmen for the contest and mentors to the winners.
When asked about what it means to be affiliated with “A Gentleman’s Call,” Adam Garone had this to say: “My fellow mentors and I are honored to lead ‘A Gentleman’s Call.’ It is a privilege and a true responsibility to guide the next generation of entrepreneurs and help foster an endeavor that will enlighten society’s appreciation for the modern gentleman.”
