What is IDEA Tank for Kids? IDEA Tank for Kids is a “Shark Tank” inspired event that gives kids (age 8-13) in your community, school, or company an opportunity to become entrepreneurs!

Why was it created? Lowey created this unique event because it’s one thing to read about entrepreneurs, it’s another to be one. IDEA Tank for Kids does just that… gives kids a chance to be an entrepreneur.

How does it work? Every “contestant” gets a chance to pitch his or her idea to a “Shark” Judge, successful executives and entrepreneurs from your area. Finalists compete for big cash prizes. Each kid receives valuable one-on-one time with individual Judges as well as an experience they will never forget.

When and where is it? Winnetka IDEA Tank for Kids launched in Chicago’s North Shore in July 2019 and will return in Summer 2020. New in 2020… DURHAM IDEA Tank for Kids! We are bringing IDEA Tank for Kids to the Research Triangle in North Carolina. For more information visit www.IdeaTankForKids.com.

Can you customize IDEA Tank for my Company? Yes! IDEA Tank for Kids at your Company brings this unique experience to your employees and their children. Lowey will create, coordinate, and host a customized IDEA Tank for Kids at your place of work. To learn more, contact Lowey.
