DDW-shark-tank Are you a caregiver with an entrepreneurial spirit?

Eager to share your latest innovations?

Then get ready for Shark Tank!

The SSAT will be participating in the 2024 Shark Tank session at DDW. This session will be a fun, high energy and entertaining, interactive session focused around scientific innovation. It will feature "innovators" from each society who will pitch their best scientific innovations/research. Innovators will use a "pure pitch" style to present the value of their work and vision. Innovators will have an opportunity to receive important feedback and be asked questions about their work from the sharks. Each innovator will have a maximum of five minutes to pitch and five minutes of moderated Q&A. The sharks and audience then vote on the best innovation. To submit a proposal for consideration, please complete the form below.
