Do you have what it takes to score at ULI Arizona’s Shark Tank?

Tailored after the popular TV show and following the huge success of Shark Tank at ULI Fall Meetings, ULI Arizona is again bringing together expert money and real local deals, including a panel of “sharks,” moderated by C. Joseph Blackbourn, president and chief executive officer for Everest Holdings, to evaluate the proposals and offer the audience a look behind the closed doors of an investment committee.

ULI Arizona’s Shark Tank will take place November 16 from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm at Montelucia Resort.

• Drew Brown, DMB
