Applications are being accepted for the 13th round of funding through Salisbury University’s Philip E. and Carole R. Ratcliffe Foundation Shore Hatchery entrepreneurship program through Monday, Sept. 23.
Business startups throughout the mid-Atlantic are eligible to apply for their share of $200,000 per academic year. Selected entrepreneurs will have the chance to exhibit and present their proposals to the Shore Hatchery advisory board for consideration Friday, Oct. 25, at SU’s Perdue Hall.
Participants will pitch their business ideas to the board during a “Gull Cage” competition similar to the format used for the hit ABC-TV show Shark Tank.
