We highly encourage each finalist to present at the next GCU Shark Tank on Thursday March 12 at 5pm in the College of Nursing Lecture Hall. We will also be creating short back story promo videos of each finalist and will need each of you to schedule with Lemmy Gitahi for that video shoot within the next week! 480-842-1540 email@example.com
Please contact Tim Kelley with any questions or comments you might have about the logistics for presenting on the 24th of March at 1:30 in the Arena. The five finalists will also be invited to a private luncheon with all of the judges in the ARC at 12:00 noon prior to the event.
The scoring was tight and all of the 10 finalists were very well done and a special congratulation is owed to all of the participants. If you were not chosen as a finalist it does not mean that your business will not be successful or can’t work. GCU IDEA is here to help you refine your idea and better your chances for success.
A special thanks to our judges, Dean Gibb and the IDEA team for all of their hard work. None of this would be possible without them!
Live Long and Prosper! (In honor of the late Spock)
