Tiger-Shark Tank 2
October 24 @ 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Back for a 2nd year, The Ridgefield Community & Economic Development Commission’s (ECDC) and Ridgefield Playhouse present Tiger Shark Tank 2023! Ridgefield-based entrepreneurs and business owners can pitch their idea to a panel of notable international corporate leaders, well-known national entrepreneurs, private equity investors, and Ridgefield ECDC members. As on the nationally televised Shark Tank, presenters will have 15 minutes to profile their concept to the judges and audience. Entrepreneurs who pitch will receive real time feedback from accomplished private investors. The panel will then vote on the best ideas and award Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce gift cards to the top three presentations. The winner will receive a $3,000 gift card, the runner-up will receive a $1,500 gift card, and third place will receive a $500 gift card, which can be redeemed at any Ridgefield chamber of commerce business. A financial investment from judges is not part of the event.
Doors and cash bar will open at 5:30pm for pre-event networking, with pitches beginning at 6:30pm. The evening is free and open to the public, however you must reserve your general admission seat to attend. Walk ups are welcome on the evening of the event.
