Entrepreneurs: You Can Pitch Shark Tank in Kansas City
ABC's hit television show "Shark Tank" is coming to Kansas City and producers are looking for local entrepreneurs to pitch their million dollar idea to the show's famous investors.
According to KMBC, "Shark Tank" will be in Kansas City Friday February 21 in Kansas City's 18th and Vine District from 10:00AM - 5:00PM CST at the Opportunity Hub's Ecosystem Lab.
The Kansas City stop is part of the Shark Tank Diversity Tour. According to the tour's website, "With the support of producer Mark Burnett, Values Partnerships leads a nationwide casting tour supporting diverse entrepreneurs and ecosystems, and recruiting diverse voices to pitch on the show."
If you're thinking of pitching your business the producers note, "Shark Tank occasionally features entrepreneurs who have a 'good idea', but the vast majority of entrepreneurs that appear on the show display traction through user acquisition, sales, and/or intellectual property protection. We look forward to seeing you pitch your business."
