JOIN US AS THE 16-17 STUDENTS TAKE THE STAGE TO PITCH THEIR BUSINESSES TO A “SHARK TANK” STYLE PANEL.
Tuesday, March 14th | 6:00 – 9:30 PM
FAU Jupiter, LLS Auditorium | 5353 Parkside Dr.
Free Event | Open to the Public
The YEA! Investor Panel is the culmination of what the class of 2016-2017 has been working on since October. This is an exciting opportunity for the students to take the stage in a “shark tank” style format, in which students will pitch their businesses to a group of local business leaders/owners in the community.
Microphone in hand, students have five minutes to present their business plan to the investor panel to compete for real start-up capital to launch their businesses. Investors will also select the YEA! Saunders Semi-Finalist from the Palm Beach North region; this business will move onto YEA!’s regional competition for a chance to compete in the final round of the Saunders Scholars Competition, hosted in Washington, D.C. at America’s Small Business Summit.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
