Ratcliffe Shore Hatchery Submissions Accepted Through Apr. 9

Perdue School LogoSALISBURY, MD---Applications are being accepted for the 10th round of funding through Salisbury University’s Philip E. and Carole R. Ratcliffe Foundation Shore Hatchery entrepreneurship program from March 5-April 9.

Business startups throughout the mid-Atlantic are eligible to apply for their share of $98,000. Selected entrepreneurs will have the chance to exhibit and present their proposals to the Shore Hatchery advisory board for consideration Thursday, May 10, at SU’s Perdue Hall.

Participants will pitch their business ideas to the board during a “Gull Cage” competition similar to the format used for the hit ABC-TV show Shark Tank.

The Ratcliffe Shore Hatchery program was established with the foundation’s initial $1 million contribution in 2013 and will continue an additional five years thanks to a new $1 million gift from the foundation, announced in 2016. It is administered through SU’s Franklin P. Perdue School of Business.
