Atlanta's First Presbyterian Church Creates 'Shark Tank' For Community Focused Business

Jan 10, 2020

For more than a decade, the primetime reality series Shark Tank has given entrepreneurs a chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of wealthy business titans. These “sharks” then decide whether to invest in the idea or company. 

Last year, Atlanta’s First Presbyterian Church started their own “shark tank.”  It’s a social entrepreneurship venture called Epiphany.  Much like the show, the church’s Epiphany program puts out a call for budding business ideas and offers support to select entrepreneurs through business development “navigator” groups, which then help them refine their final pitch to be selected for a grant from Epiphany’s pool of money.


Ellen Adair Wyche, chair of the Epiphany program, joined On Second Thought to share details of the program.

You can learn more about Epiphany Round 2 applications at their website.
