The ABC Network and producer Mark Burnett’s ‘One Three Media’, have announced they are looking for minority and women-owned businesses to appear on their reality show “Shark Tank”. To make this happen the casting directors for the show will be holding an open call on Friday, August 23, during the Kingonomics Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Investment Conference in Washington D.C. All conference registrants will receive priority consideration for a chance to be a part of this casting call. Now minority and women entrepreneurs will have the chance to fulfill their own dreams with a chance to audition for “Shark Tank”, providing an opportunity for them to gain the much needed capital for growing their businesses. “Shark Tank” averaged close to 7 million viewers this past season and features a panel of “potential investors” called “sharks.” The “sharks” review offers from “aspiring entrepreneurs” seeking investments for their business or product. The entrepreneur is given the opportunity to make a deal on the show if a panel member is interested, but if not they leave with nothing.
