2018 Poe Man's Challenge in Memphis
About the Poe Man's Challenge
The Poe Man's Challenge was a “Shark Tank-like” competition that was the culmination of the first Poe Man's Dream Entrepreneur Camp. Teams of students pitched local Memphis startups to see who pitched the best. These "founders for a day" were mentored by the local startups during the day.

“The best way you can impact these kids and change the narrative of Memphis starts with the youth.”
-- Omar Sillah
"I was next to Silicon Valley and I didn't know it existed. So it's those barriers that people don't know, and it takes people like Dontari Poe and myself to really break down those barriers and show positive representation for what you can achieve.”
-- George Hofstetter
