DENVER – The Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship hosted three casting associates from ABC’s Shark Tank for a Denver College Day. The critically-acclaimed business-themed show, Shark Tank, has the Sharks continuing the search to invest in the best businesses and products that America has to offer. The show received a nomination for a Producers Guild Award in 2013.
During the four hour college call in the Cordillera Board Room in the lobby of the CU Denver Business School, the Shark Tank associates watched pitches from CU Denver students and alumni. Presenters pitched ideas from mobile applications to barbeque grill knobs.
Among the attendees were four applicants from this year’s Business Plan Competition. The 2014 Business Plan Competition will be hosted on June 19th at the Four Seasons Downtown. The top six finalist will present their plans in front of a live panel of venture capitalist to receive cash and in-kind awards over $25,000. The Awards Luncheon will follow the presentations.
