BGSU hosting “Shark Tank” competition

Posted: Updated:

Tonight Bowling Green State University's College of Business is hosting "The Hatch," a competition similar to "Shark Tank" on ABC.

Nine BGSU students will be presenting their business ideas to a panel of five investors who will decide which start up they will help fund.  Students won't just win prizes for the best idea, some will actually receive funding to start up their businesses!

The student entrepreneurs were "coached" by 11 BGSU business alums to prepare for "The Hatch" and most of these mentors will be attending the event as well to support their students.

 "The Hatch" is being presented live in front of more than 400 people and streamed live from the College of Business's website.  Click here to watch.
