DETROIT – Metro Detroit entrepreneurs will get a shot at appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank, the popular television series that can lead to big investment dollars, on May 16 at Grand Circus. But you need to sign up quickly to secure your place in this casting call.

If selected, you will be asked to do a very quick formal pitch (about 60-90 seconds) and then some Q&A.  Entrepreneurs should bring their product to demo, but that they don’t need to prepare a formal presentation.

Values Partnerships said it is working with Shark Tank and our partners to support entrepreneurship and bring more diverse ideas and voices to the show. On a first come, first serve basis, companies may be selected to pitch their businesses to the casting team from ABC’s Shark Tank.

From the producers: “Please note: Shark Tank occasionally features entrepreneurs who have a “good idea,” but the vast majority of entrepreneurs that appear on the show display market demand through user acquisition, sales, and/or intellectual property protection. We look forward to seeing you pitch your business.”

This event is sponsored by Shark Tank, Grand Circus Detroit, Brand Camp University, and Values Partnerships.
