Watch startup teams from around Brandeis compete for up to $50,000 in prizes in our 4th annual SPARKTank competition. Teams will present their ideas for innovations in high tech, social enterprise, business-to-business, and consumer products to a group of judges, and the winners will receive funding, mentorship, and support as they strive to make a difference in the world through entrepreneurship. 

Brandeis’ SPARKTank is one of the only university startup competitions in which students, faculty, and staff compete as equals. Last year’s winners, WorkAround, went on to win Boston and national startup competitions, including being named a semifinalist at MassChallenge, taking first place at the MIT Enterprise Forum/HUBWeek Beantown Throwdown, and SheStarts’ ShePitches competition. You just might see the next groundbreaking startup to come out of Brandeis at SPARKTank.
