Mark Tank is a mock Shark Tank in our business class here at UAT. Later in the class the teacher named the top three students she wanted to participate in the Mark Tank challenge and I was one of the students chosen. Obviously this was a fun learning opportunity so I took the opportunity and ran with it.

My experience with Mark Tank was a very invigorating and interesting one. My dad is a proud business owner and has been through the majority of my life. So obviously this opportunity intrigued me. I took a more practical approach to the current market with patent-able project. This was not a crazy new innovative idea, rather, it was a new approach to an existing possibility. My idea was a wireless door locking IoT system for businesses infrastructures with a security aspect driven as the core selling point.

Participating in this activity outside of class and pursuing my idea a step forward in a real environment seemed to be something I assumed I would excel at and have fun with. This whole project pushed me to see how much I had improved in this class and to overview my idea as a whole and sell it. The opportunity and presentation of my project will not be forgotten and is a core position in where I am academically now.
