The Brock School of Business will host the sixth annual Lion’s Den event on Thursday, Oct. 10 in the Wright Center.
The event attracts aspiring entrepreneurs from across the world to pitch their business idea in a “Shark Tank” style event.
Presented by Cedarworks Inc., “the goal of the Lion’s Den is to inspire, educate and mobilize people to invest their time, talents and other resources in the Kingdom through a “business as mission” (BAM) platform,” according to a press release from Samford.
Participants who want to operate a business under the BAM platform will pitch their idea in front of a live audience and panel of judges, known as the “lions.” Business plans will be evaluated by “the company’s ability to produce financial, social, conservation and spiritual results, known as the “quadruple bottom-line,”’ according to the press release.
Following their presentations, the “lions” will choose a winner to be funded by a group of investors.
There will be two parts of this event that are open to the public. An exhibit hall and networking event with local and international businesses will occur in the Wright Center from 2-4 p.m.. The Lion’s Den presentation will be from 4-6 p.m. in the Wright Center.
