About the Event
The Veteran Shark Tank was created in 2012 as a way to promote and assist Veterans who are starting or growing their businesses. The event has grown over the years, we now have sponsors, candidates and attendees coming from all over the country for the finals held in Philadelphia.
The regional winner will pitch their business plan to a panel of “sharks” and a sold out audience – 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.
Calling All Veterans
If you are a veteran looking to start or grow your business and want to participate, please sign up for one of our Regional Qualifers. The winner from each Qualifer will earn a spot in the Finals in Philadelphia for a chance at $50,000.
With a large monetary prize, valuable exposure to investors, business leaders and a network for life, there will be a great deal of competition to earn one of the five finalist spots. Don't miss out on this opportunity!
