Walleye Tank

Walleye Tank is the result of a collaboration between the collider foundation and the Mayo Clinic Office of Entrepreneurship and aims to provide a forum and framework for entrepreneurial education in Rochester. The principal event organized by Walleye Tank is the biannual pitch competition modeled after the popular television show Shark Tank in which local entrepreneurs gather to pitch their companies to a panel of “Walleyes.” There are two different pitch categories at Walleye Tank:

Junior Anglers

Students of entrepreneurialism from all Mayo campuses as well of the University of Minnesota come fresh from dedicated courses designed to help them turn their ideas into viable businesses.

Professionals

Representatives of incorporated companies from early stage development to established businesses have a chance to show investors the progress they have made and where they intend to go in the future.

The Walleyes

All of these events are overseen by a panel of judges assembled from experienced entrepreneurs and investors from the local area. The judges have a chance to question and advise the entrepreneurs after each pitch as well as forge connections with promising companies. Meet the Walleyes!
