The Lion’s Den business plan competition is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., in TECO Hall / and through Video Teaching and Teleconferencing (VTT). The main goal of the competition is for students to create a new business idea/concept that they will present to a group of Lions much like the TV show Shark Tank. Presenters want these Lions to invest their money into the business. This will be the end product, which students will keep in mind as they go through the process.
