Judson Shark Tank

The Business Department helps to host our annual Judson Shark Tank event. Inspired by the reality business pitch series “Shark Tank” on ABC, this fosters creativity and entrepreneurship for students within all majors. Students prepare a pitch for their own business and deliver their presentation before a panel of judges. These judges are chosen for their leadership in local businesses.

Students work with business mentors to develop their business plans and learn valuable skills for perfecting their pitch, and compete to win more than $1,000 in prize money.
