Shark Tank Competition

Have a business idea? Take part in the annual Shark Tank Competition and bring your dreams to fruition. 

Giant check

The annual Shark Tank Competition is an opportunity for students to receive funding to take their ideas and turn them into ventures, as well as scale existing ventures. Individuals will pitch their ideas or ventures to a board of Holy Cross Sharks, who come from our vast network of alumni, in front of an audience of their peers.

Annual Shark Tank Competition

The competition is designed to give students real-world experience to pitch their ideas for one of two categories: seed and early-stage. Judges will evaluate the seed category based on the market opportunity and concept validation of the business idea. Judges will evaluate the early-stage category, entrepreneurs who have more developed business models.

The best pitches will walk away with cash prizes, mentoring opportunities, in-kind services and much more, totaling over $50,000 in combined prizes.
