Biting into Business (June 28, 2016) The Engineer’s Club played TV studio for an episode of “Piranha Tank,” which offers local inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators a chance to get in front of a group of local investors and pitch their ideas and businesses that are both sustainable and profitable. Everyone involved – as well as those who bought tickets to watch the taping – enjoyed a cocktail hour there before the “work” got underway.
