Bank Tank 24'
Join us on February 22
The What - The Bank Tank Event is our version of Shark Tank, where any current business or upstart can pitch their business vision at a live event for a chance to win money toward their dream. We have increased the prize money this year to $20,000! The inspiration for this event came from our host, Elyce Billany, whose side hustle was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank. Instead of a tv studio, we will be hosting this pitch contest in front of a live audience with food and drinks.

The When - The pitch contest will take place on February 22, 2024, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at The Stardust Venue - 218 Iowa St, Davenport, IA 52801. Seating is limited and RSVP's are required, so save your spot today!

The How - 3 businesses will be selected to pitch to a panel of successful entrepreneurial judges. The winner will receive a $20,000 prize to help them with their bold vision. The pitch contest will start after music and drinks in front of a live audience. The winner will be announced at the end of the night. This event is open to the public.

The Why - Fortress Bank continues to recognize the importance of small business owners in our communities and the positive impact they have on our local economies. Our mission is to empower fellow visionaries and small business owners to fulfill their dreams.
