Swimming With The Sharks!

On Monday, January 30 at 5 pm in Jordan Auditorium, Shark Tank’s very own KEVIN O’LEARY is coming to campus!


Three lucky student  teams will be picked to pitch their ventures at this event. To determine those who will be invited to pitch LIVE at our Swimming with the Sharks event, we are hosting a “pitch competition” on Monday,  January 23 from  5-7 pm in Mendoza 133 . Teams of 1-2 students will have just 3 minutes to pitch their student venture to a panel of judges.  Our judges will select the 3 best student ventures to pitch LIVE before Kevin O'Leary on January 30.  Please see the attached outline of judging criteria. 


All student founders are encouraged to pitch their ideas.   This event is for true STUDENT for-profit ventures only - if you are working with a faculty member's invention/IP or working with an alumni team, this is NOT for you.  Reference the attached guidelines for details.


If you would like to sign up for the preliminary pitch event, simply use this form to select a timeslot that will work for you.  We will reach out before January 23 to confirm.
