Thursday, March 2 is the date for this year’s wildly popular Shark Tub event on the Ohio University-Zanesville/Zane State campus as entrepreneurs pitch their proposed products to a fascinated public. Hundreds of guests will have the opportunity to learn about investment potential companies. Each attendee will be given $100,000 in play money when they arrive. Attendees will “invest” their money according to the companies they feel they’d like to invest in. They can split their money up or invest all in one company. Enjoy appetizers and live music while waiting for the final results to be announced. Doors to the Investment Hall open at 5:45pm. Investments close at 7:30pm, when tallies are then made. The top three products will then address the Shark Panel who question their proposals, followed by the announcement of the winner of a $10,000 start-up prize to the winner to invest in their new product/business. Tickets should be purchased in advance. The sponsor is MCBI which promotes business incubation in Muskingum County.
Location: Littick Hall at the OUZ/Zane State Campus – 1555 Newark-Zanesville Road, Zanesville, Ohio 43701
