The Pino Center offers Shark Tank workshop -- free for Business Plan Challenge participants

Are you ready to launch your business and take it to the next level?  The Pino Center Shark Tank is an opportunity to have your pitch reviewed by a local panel of entrepreneurs and mentors.

The Shark Tank -- the final event in the Florida International University Pino Global Entrepreneurship Center's spring workshop series -- will be an educational and networking opportunity for all, regardless of whether you are in the audience or on the main stage. One winning pitch will be awarded a complimentary pass to the 2013 AVCC: Healthcare Innovation and Venture Capital, to take place at the Hilton Miami Downtown Dec.11-12.

The registration fee for this workshop is $50 but this is a free event to all participants of the 2013 Miami Herald Business Plan Challenge, which is sponsored by the Pino Center.
