What is a Dolphin Tank?
Springboard Enterprises Dolphin Tank® programs are “helpful feedback-driven” pitch sessions designed to provide entrepreneurs with actionable insights. The Dolphin Tank isn’t about Sharks or Dragons or a competition for the best idea, it’s about channeling the expertise of the people in the room to provide connections and advice to help entrepreneurs take the next step.
About the hosts: “Springboard is a highly-vetted expert network of innovators, investors and influencers who are dedicated to building high-growth technology-oriented companies led by women.” The New York Fashion Tech Lab “connects a select cohort of Women-led Early & Growth stage fashion-focused technology companies with New York’s leading fashion retailers and brands fostering iteration, validation, and acceleration of technologies to advance the industry.”
If you’re a fashion tech startup headed to South By, you should apply! You are invited to attend as a part of the “live audience” if you are a fashion tech advisor, investor, thought leader or someone interested in learning about innovative fashion tech companies and want to give your connections and resources. Space is limited so RSVP here to attend and email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in applying to pitch.
