On Monday, November 2, 2015 the Stony Brook Innovation Lab held the first ever Wolfie Tank. A spin off from the popular show Shark Tank, Wolfie Tank gave seven Stony Brook community members the opportunity to pitch their idea.product to a panel of expert judges.  The goal of the event was to promote an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit on the Stony Brook campus. With collaboration from our partners in College of Business, Division of Information Technology, IREP, VP for Economic Development, Long Island LaunchPad and ListNet, Wolfie Tank was able to provide current and future entrepreneurs with real life pitch experience to help with the next stages of development for  their idea/product.
