High School & Small Business Ctr Clients Compete in Shark Tank '13

Catawba Valley Community College is taking its popular “Shark Tank-type” business pitch competition to the next level this year by inviting high school seniors and clients of the CVCC Small Business Center to participate.

CVCC Shark Tank gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to present a real business idea in the same fashion as the ABC Shark Tank TV series. CVCC students, faculty, staff, and now high school students and CVCC Small Business Center clients, have the unique opportunity to enhance their communication and presentation skills, while giving them an opportunity to possibly turn their business idea into a reality.

Applications are due March 31. Details are available online at

The winners in each category will receive scholarships from the CVCC Foundation, Inc. with funding received through a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation.

More than a dozen different businesses have been launched as a result of participation in CVCC’s Shark Tank the past two years.
