The Shark Tank is your opportunity to have your pitch heard and reviewed by our panel of local entrepreneurs.
Strengthening your pitch will give you a blueprint towards your success.
As a participant in the FIU Pino Shark Tank you will have a chance to deliver a 2 minute pitch on your business concept or start up. If you have a prototype for your product you are encouraged to bring it with you!

The Shark Tank will be an educational and networking opportunity for all, regardless of whether you are in the audience or on the main stage.
