SOMERSET, NJ - Business owners from Franklin and beyond are invited to pitch their business plan to lenders who can help them secure funding during an event conceptually based on ABC's Shark Tank.

The Franklin Township Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Small Business Administration will be partnering to host the event, which will be held at Central Jersey College Prep Charter School, Tuesday, June 12 from 3 pm to 8 pm. 

Lenders in attendance will briefly provide feedback to the business owners, review their financing needs, and schedule more detailed interviews with business owners whose needs may be a match with their lending portfolio.
