Tech Launch Arizona: Shark For A Day 2

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Are you a UA faculty member, researcher or graduate student considering a startup? Do you have an invention that you think might have great impact for industry or the public? 

This workshop – first offered in 2017 and now back by popular demand – gives you a taste of the tools expert investors use to evaluate startups.

LEARN: At this UA version of "Shark Tank," you and your colleagues will be the sharks, learning a variety of quick-to-use tools and techniques to evaluate what makes an investment-ready university startup.

PRACTICE: Then, you'll apply those ideas by listening to a pitch from a fictional startup and scoring it on its potential for success. Will the startup have teeth and be worthy of funding? Or will there be blood in the water? 

ENGAGE: Join the Tech Launch Arizona team of experts as we explore what makes for startup success and answer your questions after the frenzy.

NOTE: This event is for UA faculty, researchers and graduate students. 

Lunch will be provided for all who register in advance.
