I'm a big fan of the TV show Shark Tank on ABC. Entrepreneurs seeking a cash infusion can pitch their concept to five legendary investors and see who bites. Half the fun of the show is seeing the wild, wacky and sometimes downright ingenious ideas that people have come up with. And the other half of the fun is watching all of the investors fight each other to strike the best deal and gain the right to develop and invest in a really great brand.
No one has a better killer instinct than Dallas’ own entrepreneur, billionaire and businessman, Mark Cuban. On Thursday, August 28, he will introduce North Texas to four new entrepreneurs that he personally scouted and is endorsing their products at various Central Market locations around the DFW-area. You can meet Mark Cuban and see product demonstrations from Alyssa’s Healthy Cookie, Chapul, Monkey Mat and Simple Sugars.
