Ultra Machining Company Chief Operating Officer Jaci Dukowitz represents the business sector as a panelist during the annual Minnesota State Shark Tank Open. Students, faculty and staff who are also inventors, entrepreneurs and trailblazers will convene for the Shark Tank “show down” with a cross-sectional panel of academic, non-profit and business leaders on Thursday, April 4 at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel, Bloomington, MN.

Each year, representatives from 37 colleges and universities statewide create a wave of excitement as they reimagine education. Faculty, staff and students go before expert panels (the sharks) and pitch-in their creative and innovative ideas competing to win up to $25,000 in funding to financially further their endeavor. Funded projects aim to address obstacles to student success by using existing technologies, resources or practices in innovative ways.

UMC, a family-owned business based in Monticello, MN, began as a small-garage start up more than 50 years ago. Today, the company is a national precision-manufacturing leader producing complex parts for medical, aerospace and commercial industries.
