Venture Connectors October Lunch: Venture Shark Finals
October 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
Join us in October for the finals of our Venture Sharks pitch competition, where four early-stage companies and entrepreneurs who are seeking funding for their business plans will compete for cash and prizes. Venture Sharks has awarded more than $100,000 in prizes since it was launched in 2010.
The top ideas were selected to compete in our preliminary round in mid-September, where the field was narrowed to four finalists.
Three startups will fend for themselves against a panel of savvy investor sharks fishing for the next great deal during our regular monthly lunch on Wednesday, Oct. 6. Competitors will be given a few minutes to present, then the judges will fire off questions to them in the style of the popular television show, “Shark Tank.”
One lucky survivor will receive a prize package designed to help them take their idea to market, including a $5,000 cash award, one-on-one mentoring from established entrepreneurs and advisors, as well as in-kind services provided our valued sponsors.
