This event will be structured similarly to the popular ABC TV show Shark Tank™. Viewers have enjoyed the lively and interesting format of the show in which entrepreneurs present their business ideas to well-known investors.

The event will follow the TV show’s format, featuring six local ventures. Entrepreneurs will have five minutes to pitch deals to a panel of entrepreneurs/investors. The panel will then provide feedback to presenters, ask tough business questions, and decide which teams are worthy of the $1750 in prize money. (1st Place Prize is $1000, 2nd Place Prize is $750)

The event is open to the community and students, investors and entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend.
