SNEEF – Piranha Pond Pitch Party 2018

March 14, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

You’ve heard of the SHARK TANK, welcome to the PIRANHA POND

What is the Piranha Pond?

It is a “pitch party” where a select group of entrepreneurs has up to 5 minutes to convince a panel of investors to meet with them to further discuss their ventures. Using a format similar to the popular television show Shark Tank, our investors provide feedback to the entrepreneurs about their presentations and companies, and information to all about why they decide to be “In” or “Out.” If they are “In” they will meet with the Entrepreneur at a later time to discuss their company. If they are “Out” there is no interest at this time. Again, the investor lets us know why s/he will not move forward with the presenter. For more information and Investor Bios, click here http://sneef.org/page-1534174

For this event, we seek companies beyond the idea stage. The ideal company will have raised funds from friends, family, and/or grants such as SBIR’s. If the company’s product is a software or SAAS product, it should be in beta testing or later.

NOTE: please read the Entrepreneur Guidelines (PDF file) before applying. There is a $50 application fee required in order to be considered.

Entrepreneur Guidelines

A selection committee will choose the top 8 applicants to present. The successful applicants will be deemed to have companies most likely to interest the investment panel. In the past, the successful companies have been beyond the idea stage, with a finished product and/or revenue or significant progress toward commercialization if a pharma, equipment or medical device company.
