Calling all mini entrepreneurs! 

Do you have ideas to create the next best product on the market? Do you think you have what it takes to convince investors to believe in your product? Learn how you can make your dream a reality with Junior Shark Tank. Students will propose a business plan and create a presentation that they will pitch to a group of “investors”. 

Students will gain valuable skills such as oral presentation, marketing, accounting and finance, as well as how to fundraise and implement production of a product. If you think you’ve got what it takes, jump into the tank and face “The Sharks”.

Student Comments from Summer 2023

“I loved the curriculum and the teacher was very kind, organized, and was perfect about giving the right amount of work.”

“We learned about franchises, entrepreneurs, companies, etc. We also created a product and worked on it for most of the day and pitched it on Friday. I felt like it was cool to learn about stuff and really fun to pitch a product.”

“I loved this program. It was really fun and educational. Our teacher was very nice.”


It's time to make your pitch!
