UMD Shark Tank Competition: https://lsbe.d.umn.edu/centers-outreach/centers/umd-shark-tank

Learn how to research, forecast and analyze your business idea, and wrap it all up into a Feasibility Study. Learn about the process in a workshop, and develop the idea with the help of faculty, business development counselors, and other students.

Then, submit your study, and get written feedback from entrepreneurs, investors, and others.  If you are a finalist, you will have the chance to pitch your idea and get direct feedback.  Three awards are given out: $1000, $750, and $500.  There is an additional $100 award for the study that best incorporates principles of sustainability.

When you are done, you will truly understand what it would take to start your business, and you will have a great document you can show others to get their support (or their investment dollars)!
