Spark Tank is an idea contest.  It is co-sponsored by the Stack Center and the Entrepreneurship Club. Any current Siena student (or group of students) is eligible to enter the contest. In addition, Spark Tank takes place once a semester. You may have students from the Accelerate518 ecosystem as we value an interdisciplinary and balanced team.  You can work with the staff at the Stack Center for assistance and feedback on your pitch.

It's a great opportunity for your business idea to receive expert advice and feedback! Also the top three teams can win a cash prize!
