Registration for IDEA TANK for Kids 2020 (Chicagoland) opens January 1, 2020.


IDEA Tank for Kids is the nation’s hottest entrepreneurial competition and it’s just for KIDS!


"The purpose of IDEA Tank for Kids is simple. I want to give kids with ideas an opportunity to figure out how they would turn that idea into a real business. Kids pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, similar to "Shark Tank" but for a chance to win big cash prizes. What they get out of IDEA Tank are some of the key learning lessons of being a real entrepreneur. These kids become risk-takers, build resilience, develop communication skills, solve problems, and think creatively - all critical skills our future entrepreneurs and business leaders must have."
