Additional Shark Cage Businesses

Each Razor’s Edge Shark Cage Scholars Program student opens an on-campus, student-run business in order to fulfill their scholarships. Each business aims to engage all members of the NSU community including students, faculty, and staff.  Students went through specifically designed courses to aid them in getting their businesses started. From making Shark Pitches and Shark Funding Pitches to faculty members and entrepreneurs, students gained confidence in starting their on-campus businesses.  These students are joining six returning Shark Cage student-run businesses from last year, Mako Me Fit (protein shakes), The Lemonade Stand, Shark MGT, Shark Market, Shark Vault, and Simple Servings as well as three Shark Cage businesses that opened last week, Mako Ice, Natural Bowl, and Shark Bait Candy Shop.  Watch your messages because there are an additional five Shark Cage student-run businesses opening between September 19-20 . We invite you to ENGAGE with them and support their businesses.
