Wolfie Tank to give Stony Brook students, staff, a taste of 'Shark Tank'

It's not easy to land an appearance on "Shark Tank," the ABC series that receives tens of thousands of applications each year from entrepreneurs hoping to pitch their ideas to investors.

Students and staff at Stony Brook University, however, have another option: Wolfie Tank. The Nov. 2 event, named for Stony Brook's mascot, the Sea Wolf, is modeled after the TV show and will give participants a chance to bounce business plans off seasoned entrepreneurs, who will offer feedback and advice.

Judges will include Andrew Hazen, who runs several local co-working spaces for technology startups, and Paul Trapani, a vice president of the Long Island Software & Technology Network. Competitors must apply by Oct. 9. For more go to you.stonybrook.edu/wolfietank
