Our version of Shark Tank

Student groups at Park Tank 2019

Each year during alumni weekend, students have the opportunity to pitch ideas for media-related companies, products, or projects to a panel of alumni and IC staff "sharks".  The projects have ranged from apps, documentary films, or beauty and fashion projects marketed through e-commerce.

Park tank judges

This year's "sharks" included Business School Dean Sean Reid, alumna and marketing exec Laurie Greenberg, alumnus and film producer Dan Heffner, and IC Chief Financial Officer Bill Guerrero.
