Do you have an invention that you think might have great impact for industry or the public? This workshop gives you a taste of the tools expert investors use to evaluate startups.
    At this UA version of “Shark Tank,” you and your colleagues will be the sharks, learning a variety of quick-to-use tools and techniques to evaluate what makes an investment-ready university startup.
    Then, you’ll apply those ideas, listening to a pitch and scoring it on its potential for success.
