Do you have what it takes to swim with the sharks?
Could you use more than $15,000 in cash and prizes for your startup company?
If you think you're sitting on the next big idea, apply for Venture Sharks, the region's hottest business competition. You can't win if you don't jump in the water!
Modeled after the hit TV show, "Shark Tank," Venture Sharks gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their business concepts to an expert panel of investor sharks hungry for a great deal.
Semifinalists will be chosen April 5, and they'll go head to head during the first round of competition on April 12 for a spot in the finals. On May 3, the lucky finalists got into the water with our investor sharks at our monthly Venture Connectors meeting, held in downtown Louisville at the Muhammad Ali Center.
The sharks will come hungry this year, but only one company will have the right bait! Will it be you? Click the button to apply!
