Do you have cool ideas for a new business, either general or music-related? We’re ready to help turn your dreams into reality. Similar to ABC’s hit show, “Shark Tank,” students attend a series of preparation workshops and/or individual coaching sessions to create a threeminute video introducing an entrepreneurial idea to solve a significant market challenge. Finalists pitch ideas on stage before judges and a public audience to win a share of the $10,000 prize pool.

Nonetheless, this program creates an opportunity for students to present their business venture idea in an environment that celebrates new venture creation, entrepreneurial thinking and the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Not only are students granted this platform to showcase teir talent and passions but they are awarded cash prizes and certificates of participation based on the merits of their ideas and presentations.
