Tiger Tank

Are You Ready to Take a Plunge in the Tiger Tank?

This event, sponsored by the Saunders College of Business, gives students the opportunity to pitch their business idea to a panel of judges (aka, tiger sharks) with a chance to win cash prizes.

Submissions describe an early stage product or service with foreseeable commercial impact. This includes:

  • The ways in which this venture is unique and what problem it seeks to solve or gap in the marketplace it seeks to fill.
  • A description of your target market - inclusive of who potential consumers and/or users would be and what value your venture would add to their lives.
  • Any potential challenges to delivering this product or service.

The proposals will be evaluated based upon their uniqueness, feasibility and the ability to impact people.
