Tiger Tank

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


Applications for spring are now open!

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.

                                                                                  Round 1 (Semi-Finals) Video Pitch

           It's easy! Simply record a 90 second video of you pitching your idea and complete the registration. The deadline to sumbit your video has been extended to April 13, 2020 at 8:00 am.  Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing student teams should contact Access Services at http://myaccess.rit.edu to request interpretation services.  Please allow ample time for interpretation services.  Request it early.

                                                                                  Round 2 (Finals) Video Pitch

         The top 30 teams from Round 1 will be invited to submit another 90 second video pitch of their idea in the final round.
