Sharktank Workshop for Teens: Pitching to Adult Investors as a Youth Entrepreneur

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Are you ready to launch your own startup? Come learn how to do it straight from Seattle's real tech CEOs!

In this workshop, Leslie Feinzaig, the Founder & CEO of Venture Kits and Seattle Female Founders Alliance, will show you how to pitch an idea in front of investors... just like they do in Sharktank. You'll work in teams with other aspiring student entrepreneurs to brainstorm a business idea and create a pitch for it. At the end of the workshop, each team will get to pitch their idea on stage for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. 

And, by the way, you'll be mentored by leading Seattle CEOs!

This is a great opportunity to learn some important foundational skills in starting a business while getting a flavor of the startup culture in Seattle. We think it will be the most fun event in all of Seattle Startup Week!
