Student and adult entrepreneurs will once again have a chance to earn their share of cash and mentorship opportunities as “Project Pitch It,” a local TV show similar to ABC’s “Shark Tank,” gears up for its eighth season.
Season eight will once again welcome a combination of adult and student entrepreneurs (ages 13-18). Applications are now open for both student and adult entrepreneurs. Those interested in applying must record a video of their pitch and submit it online by Oct. 9. Auditions will be held later this fall.
During past seasons of “Project Pitch It,” 24 entrepreneurs pitched their business to a group of moguls to earn both funding and mentorship opportunities, ranging from a meeting with a local marketing leader to guidance from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Lubar Entrepreneurship Center. Each episode typically features three entrepreneurs.
