Gustie Tank


Want to make the world a better place? Have an idea that could improve lives? Test it out at the Gustie Tank!

Gustie Tank brings together students from across the campus who are interested in developing entrepreneurial ventures. Students pitch ideas, audience decides the winner, winner gets $50. 

You get 4 minutes to convince the audience why your idea should win. No need to register, just come and pitch! Not ready to pitch? Come to cheer others. Each Gustie Tank night starts with pizza.
