From Black Enterprise…
Every Friday night millions of fans tune in to watch ABC’s Shark Tank. Values Partnerships leads a nationwide casting tour for the reality television show, focused on bringing more diverse ideas and voices to the show.
In 2016, the company will host casting calls in 8 cities, giving diverse entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their businesses on Season 8 of Shark Tank. In addition, they will provide pitch prep, entrepreneurship resources, and access to capital discussions to entrepreneurs around the country with the goal of every entrepreneur leaving our events better than they came.
At each stop, Brandon Andrews from Values Partnerships will sit down for a Q/A with entrepreneurs from the Shark Tank casting calls and the organizations that support them. On March 4, 2016, the casting team for ABC’s Shark Tank is headed to Miami for the first stop in the nationwide casting tour. Values Partnerships partnered with the Knight Foundation, Urban League of Broward County, Miami Bayside Foundation, and FIU SBDC to host the event at the LAB Miami.
