Clark Tank 2022 brought about exciting changes - besides a new name and new challenges, the Clark Tank Committee decided a new logo challenge was in order.

A new logo was established along with a tradition of a yearly logo to represent that year's participants. It looks good on swag too.

4 Unique Funding Events of
Clark Tank

Venture Development

The Clark Tank Venture Development portion is the traditional event, which runs this fall into early spring, and provides initial seed funding to students with small businesses and social ventures. The students work with mentors, alumni, and faculty to develop their businesses, as well as participate in a credit course to develop their business. At the end of the months-long event, the top ventures will present to a panel of judges in hopes of additional funding.
