CEO vs. Sharks

December 1 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Each year, the Sangamon CEO program hosts its annual Shark Tank-style event, “CEO vs Sharks.” Sangamon CEO students team up to pitch their business ideas to local investors and entrepreneurs at a Springfield venue.  

Fans of the TV show Shark Tank will find the “CEO vs Sharks” format familiar: each team has 5 minutes to pitch their business idea to a panel of judges–“or sharks”–who will each provide feedback and score teams on the viability and creativity of their business concept as well as the quality of their presentation.

Teams compete for first, second, and people’s choice prizes. Proceeds from the event help the Sangamon CEO program fund future student activities and classrooms.

CEO vs Sharks launched in 2015.
