Watch local ‘shark tank’ contest from the comfort of your home tonight (Palm Beach Post
If you’re too busy getting to the polls before they close, you can still watch local students compete for real startup money for their businesses in a ‘shark tank’-style panel tonight.
Students from the Young Entrepreneur’s Academy! will pitch their business ideas to local business leaders/owners on an Investor Panel at the Lifelong Learning Society Auditorium of Florida Atlantic University’s Jupiter campus starting at 6 p.m.

The students will have five minutes to present their business plan to a panel of investors. The investors will then choose who to award start-up capital and to advance as the YEA! Saunders Semi-Finalist from the Palm Beach North area. That student and their business will move onto a regional competition for a chance to compete in the final round in Washington, D.C., at America’s Small Business Summit.
