Podlings Shark Tank - Roman Shaposhnik, Pivotal

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If you've ever seen Shark Tank TV show contestants pitch their business ideas to the panel of shark investors you know what to expect here (and if you haven't -- think speed dating between entrepreneurs and investors). The only difference between us and that TV show is that instead of “Squirrel Boss” and “Man Candle” you'll be hearing pitches for Apache Incubator poddlings. Also instead of Mark Cuban and Kevin O'Leary you'll be pitching to the panel of ASF grey beards. So it is more like two differences, not one, but ok: the fun and profit part of Shark Tank will be there. We guarantee that!
