Comcast Business today announced a casting call for the ABC show “Shark Tank,” providing small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs in Detroit an opportunity to seek investments in the program’s upcoming ninth season. The casting call will take place on Friday, May 5 at Focus Hope Conference Center, 1400 Oakman Blvd.
The series is headlined by business experts including Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, and Kevin O’Leary, who hear pitches regarding various business ventures, offering tough love and often their investments.
“We are always excited to visit cities across the country in our quest to find promising entrepreneurs with great ideas. I believe that great entrepreneurs are all around the U.S., and they just need an opportunity to pitch their idea, so we look forward to traveling to Detroit,” says Clay Newbill, the show’s executive producer.
Comcast Business will be providing additional amenities, including free Wi-Fi, charging stations for wireless devices, a featured speaker, and a lounge area where attendees can network with other entrepreneurs.
