The Poe Man’s Challenge was a “Shark Tank-like” competition on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016. Eight teams of 3-4 students each met with a different Kansas City startup, learned about the company and practiced pitching their company. Four hours later, the students pitched the startup Shark Tank-style in front of a panel of judges including KC Chiefs Dontari Poe, a few of his teammates and other tech luminaries. This was an event that bridged tech, youth, and Kansas City Sports.

“The best way you can impact these kids and change the narrative of Kansas City starts with the youth.”
Without our sponsors, this event would not be possible. Thanks to them for their
belief in what we are trying to do for the Memphis youth and community.
