Igniting Innovation in Pharmacy Practice 

Are you ready to dive into the tank and pitch your groundbreaking idea to a panel of sharp-minded leaders and investors? Back by popular demand, the Pharmacy Shark Tank at PSA24 is the ultimate platform for showcasing innovative solutions that address unmet clinical needs and advance patient care and pharmacy practice across all settings. 

A Call for Revolutionary Ideas 

Whether it's a novel product, a transformative program, an inventive process, cutting-edge technology, or an original invention yet to be realised – this is your moment to dream big and turn your ideas into potential reality. Your concept could be the next big thing in pharmacist practice, changing how we approach health and patient care. 

The Stage is Set: Present to the 'Sharks' 

Only four exceptional submissions will be handpicked by the Pharmacy Shark Tank Review Committee to present their concepts to our panel of 'Sharks' – esteemed industry leaders, strategists, and investors. Imagine presenting your idea on the grand stage of PSA24 on Friday, August 2, in front of an audience captivated by innovation. 


A Dynamic Pitch Experience 

Each finalist will have the unique opportunity to present their concept in a thrilling 5-minute pitch, followed by a 5-minute interactive Q&A session with the 'Sharks' and the live audience. This is not just a presentation; it's a conversation, an exchange of ideas, and a chance to persuade and inspire. 

Recognition and Rewards 

The 'Sharks' will decide which pitches compel them to invest, while the audience will vote for their favourite in the People’s Choice award. Winners will be celebrated at the session's conclusion, sharing a total prize pool of $10,000!
