She told Bernews, “There will be multi-media lectures by world-class entrepreneurship educators, as well as hands-on action learning exercises for audience members, which includes an opportunity for select members to participate in a live Shark Tank-style mock pitch/ask competition and a live in-person keynote and Q&A session by the co-star of ABC TV’s Shark Tank, Daymond John.”

“Having him here for Global Entrepreneurship Week is so fitting especially since he started from nothing but with an idea and a vision.”

She added Global Entrepreneurship Week promises to be a high energy, interactive experience for aspiring entrepreneurs, small business owners, students of business, corporate executives, or anyone who might be interested.

    I find him the least interesting of the sharks. He’s riding the FUBU coattails but that brand hasn’t been relevant since the 1990s. But to be fair this inclusion gives some life into the GEW as the initiative has a poor success rate with helping to develop small businesses.
