Asheville's most BITING live pitch event!
Big Scary Fish Tank, presented by Asheville Investment Club, is a fundraiser to benefit local non-profit, OnTrack. As the capstone event of Asheville Entrepreneurship Week, leading professionals will come together to celebrate and support our entrepreneurial community. The event begins with an hour of cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and networking, followed by a live-pitch event where four pre-selected businesses will vie for real investment dollars in exchange for equity.
On the night of September 6th, on the third floor of the historic Asheville Masonic Temple, AIC will deploy $500,000 to locally connected companies in a rousing evening of audience interactive performance and networking.
From a pool of local entrepreneurs Asheville Investment Club's managing partners have selected four finalists to compete in front of a live audience at BSFT on September 6th. This will be a night of cocktails, networking, and (hopefully!) friendly competition. By the end of the evening, any or all of these impressive entrepreneurs could walk away with a game-changing infusion of cash!
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, investor, or just enjoy thinly-veiled pop culture parody, this event offers the perfect occasion to expand your network, enjoy a uniquely interactive live competition, and celebrate the vibrant scene we have here in Asheville. Join us 9/6, 6PM at The Asheville Masonic Temple.
All proceeds benefit OnTrack, Asheville's leading non profit for financial education, counseling and support. OnTrack helps people reach their money and housing goals so they can overcome crises, afford basic needs, improve money management skills and make sound financial choices rooted in their values.
