Venture Connectors has chosen 11 semifinalists to compete in the preliminary round of our 7th annual Venture Sharks™ business competition on Wednesday, April 13, at 5:30 p.m. at Chef Space, 1812 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd. Click here to register.
During the event, all 11 entrepreneurs will present their business plans to a panel of savvy investor sharks fishing for the next great deal. The field will be narrowed to four finalists, who will then vie for $23,000 in cash and prizes at Venture Connectors’ regular monthly lunch on Wednesday, May 4, at the Muhammad Ali Center.
This year’s prize is more than double the amount of past years, thanks to our generous sponsors. In addition to the main prize, five past winners have pooled their resources and will offer a $250 cash prize to the finalist of their choosing on May 4. Logjustrips, GearBrake, Wicked Sheets, U.S. Chia and Surgical Serenity Solutions may award their special prize to a competitor other than the winner named by the judges.
