Opportunity HUB (OHUB) and Values Partnerships are bringing the casting producers of the hit series Shark Tank to Atlanta’s Dekalb County and Morehouse College on April 13 for a casting call for Season 7 of the No. 1 ABC show.
The one-day event presents a real opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to pitch their business concepts for real money to real investors. It also is an opportunity for campus CEOs to present their businesses.
The Shark Tank casting is being presented in partnership with the Dekalb Chamber of Commerce and the Morehouse Entrepreneurship Center. In addition to the casting call there will be a panel discussion with active angels and Shark Tank alum as well at each event. To learn more click here.
