ABOUT THE VETERAN SHARK TANK

The Veteran Shark Tank was created by the Greater Philadelphia Veterans Network as a way to promote and assist Veterans who are starting or growing their businesses.

The event features five aspiring veteran entrepreneurs who pitch their business plan to a panel of “sharks” and to 200+ audience members – similar to the popular TV show. The winning contestant will receive a significant monetary prize and valuable business services to grow and expand their businesses.

If you are a veteran looking to start or grow your business and want to participate, please sign up early. With a large monetary prize and valuable exposure to investors and business leaders, there will be a great deal of competition to earn one of the five finalist spots.
