VENTURE DEVELOPMENT COMPETITION
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.
This Clark Tank challenge is designed to help you take your idea into the world of angel investors and venture capitalists. All participants will be provided with tools and resources to help develop their pitch. Additionally, this challenge will help you explore your market, understand your customers and competitors, and develop a top-notch funding pitch.
