5:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Philadelphia Union League
140 South Broad Street
Veteran Shark Tank was created by Greater Philadelphia Veterans Network (GPVN) as a way to help veterans who are starting their own businesses. Similar to the popular television show Shark Tank, aspiring Veteran entrepreneurs pitch their business idea to a panel of ‘sharks’ and audience members, BUT, with a twist. Rather than an investment, our winners take home a cash prize of $10,000.The competition will allow Veteran entrepreneurs to sharpen their business pitch, gain feedback from business leaders, and compete for a cash prize, in-kind business support services, and create a Veteran network for life as they launch their new venture.
Join us for an exceptional evening! Enjoy dinner at Philadelphia’s historic Union League, network with fellow veterans and entrepreneurs, watch the veterans pitch their ideas to the sharks, and prepare to be inspired
