Back by popular demand, Oweesta’s Manatee Tank is a playful spin on Shark Tank. Aspiring Native CDFIs will give brief presentations on their organization or emerging programs to the “Manatees,” a panel of seasoned investors and funders. Manatees, will ask questions, provide constructive feedback, and discuss investment opportunities.
Presenters will be scored on mission and passion, clarity, and the ability to move the head and the heart. Pitches will be recorded and promoted on Oweesta’s digital media; video recordings can be reused by presenters.
Manatee Tank takes place during our annual Native CDFI Capital Access Convening. To get involved as a pitching organization or a ‘Manatee’ judge, contact our Manatee Tank host Fern Orie, Chief Programs Officer / Executive Vice President of Advocacy & Strategic Partnerships, at email@example.com.
