Join us in Lincoln April 5th and 6th as entrepreneurs from across the Midwest come together to network, celebrate innovation, and pitch their business ideas to ABC’s Shark Tank!

Thanks to the Engler Program at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Shark Tank casting producers will be holding their first Nebraska casting call on April 6th at the Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The “Heartland Shark Tank” series of events will kick off Friday night, April 5th at Rococo Theatre with talks from former Shark Tank contestants, preparation tips from Shark Tank casting producers, and advice from industry experts.

“The Heartland Shark Tank is more than a simple pitch. It’s a unique opportunity to network with other small business owners, hear from local small business leaders, celebrate Midwest entrepreneurship, and take your shot at Shark Tank. We are calling entrepreneurs from near and far to meet us in Lincoln, Nebraska for a chance to pitch your product and potentially change the course of your business.” –

In partnership with the Heartland Shark Tank, we will be providing office hours in Lincoln from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 6th (pro bono). To schedule a time to meet with a patent attorney to discuss patent, trademark, copyright, and other intellectual property protection during the event, please reserve a meeting time here.
