Walleye Tank

Walleye tank is the place to catch the bleeding edge of life science innovation in and around Minnesota. Entrepreneurs and investors come together for a business pitch competition aimed at companies in all stages of development. There are three 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.

Bait Shops

Distinct from the other categories, these businesses pitch their services not to the investors, but to the entrepreneurs. From business accelerators, to entrepreneurial legal teams, to start-up software support, this section aims to connect entrepreneurs with the services they need to succeed.

 

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!
