Inspired by “Shark Tank”, the SMDC Nonprofit Committee is excited to present “The Tank”.
The Tank provides SMDC Nonprofits the opportunity to vie for funding awarded by community business leaders, lenders and investors. Each nonprofit will have a few minutes to pitch their special program or organization to the audience followed by a Q&A session from the panel of ‘Sharks’. Each presenting nonprofit will be guaranteed a cash prize of $500 with the opportunity to win thousands.
Why “The Tank”? There are so many amazing nonprofits doing incredible work in our community, now is the time for our community members to find out more about these programs and to support a local cause. Nonprofits should use this opportunity to refine their presentation and showcase the needs to fellow SMDC members and receive program funding.
An application process will be used to narrow presenters down to 12 nonprofits. While it is limited to only a few nonprofits, The Tank is open to the public, allowing audience members to learn more about the programs and purpose. In preparation for the event, Chamber members will provide coaching and mentoring opportunities to help perfect the pitch.
