TECHNOIR in the Tank 2.0


Values Partnerships and Ghost Note are back, in tandem with ABC's hit show "Shark Tank" to bring another Technoir: In the Tank event to the District.

This year, following a day of pitching by emerging local companies, we're hosting an exciting evening of discussion from some of the region's top founders and VC community members.

Join us Wednesday June 15, 2016 at 6:00PM at the Anacostia Arts Center to hear from some of the prominent local entrepreneurs who have appeared on "Shark Tank" and VC and banking leaders.



Values Partnerships is working with Shark Tank and our partners to support entrepreneurship and bring more diverse ideas and voices to the show.

On a first come, first serve basis, companies may be selected to pitch their businesses to the casting team from ABC’s Shark Tank.

On June 15, 2016 two casting calls will be held in the DC area; a morning casting call at 1776 Crystal City and an afternoon casting call at Anacostia Arts Center

Please note: Shark Tank occasionally features entrepreneurs who have a “good idea,” but the vast majority of entrepreneurs that appear on the show display market demand through user acquisition, sales, and/or intellectual property protection. We look forward to seeing you pitch your business.
