by The TECHdotMN Team


Startup attorney Jeffrey Robbins experimented this weekend at Minnebar with the introduction of ‘Piranha Pool,’ a take on the popular TV show “Shark Tank.” During the 50 minute session, three tech ventures — Elevate Research, FourCubed, Kidizen — had the chance to pitch a panel of judges in front of a live audience for feedback and potential investment:

“I think the audience enjoyed it and it was beneficial for both the entrepreneurs and investors,” Robbins said when asked about the outcome. “I’d say that’s a success.”
