Life After Shark Tank: It’s Not Just About the Money

GW Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship presents:

"Life After Shark Tank: It's Not Just About the Money"

Shark Tank, the critically acclaimed and multi-Emmy Award-winning entrepreneurial-themed reality show, has taken America by storm and has inspired many spinoff shows. The business-themed show that has become a culturally defining series and inspires a nation to dream bigger recently amassed an amazing $100 million in deals offered in the Tank.

The GW Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship is excited to bring in a panel of previous Shark Tank participants and current DC-based entrepreneurs to talk with budding entrepreneurs on campus about what it takes to really get in front of an investor and how to land those imperative business deals.

Join us for an exciting night where you get to drive the conversation. Bring your questions!
