Tiburon Tank: A Pitch Competition for Latina Entrepreneurs

Jazmin Chavez May 28, 2021

Our Latinx take on the ‘Shark Tank’ competition provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to pitch their venture ideas and startups to potential investors/co-investors, and partners. This interactive event will spotlight Latina business owners, who are one of the fastest growing groups of entrepreneurs in the U.S. yet some of the most underfunded. Three Latina-owned enterprises will compete for investments from Hispanics in Philanthropy’s PowerUp Fund, with audience members being able to vote with their own dollars to add to the purse.



Meta Themes

  • Impact Investing

  • Social Entrepreneurship


Latinx, Startups, Entrepreneurship

Purpose and Desired Outcome

By hearing directly from Latina women entrepreneurs working to launch their startups, guests will better understand areas of opportunity for investments, appreciate the innovation of entrepreneurs across our nation, and see firsthand the impact of mobilizing capital to close the wealth gap and seed the new American Dream.
