Entrepreneur Panel. Former contestants from the hit ABC TV Show Shark Tank* will share stories about their experience on the show. Some were fortunate to successfully gain funding from the Shark Tank investors. Others were not but used the exposure they gained to grow their businesses. Their stories did not end once the episode was over. We are looking forward to hearing firsthand the steps they took after starring on Shark Tank that led to their million and multi-million businesses today. The panel will take place on the Inspiration2020 Showcase Theater Stage from 10:15am-11:15am at Small Business Expo with guests such as: · Slyde Handboards – Angela & Steve Watts · Sub Zero Ice Cream – Jerry Hancock · Ry’s Ruffery – Daniela Kelly Small Business Expo (https://www.thesmallbusinessexpo.com/San-Diego) expects to have more than 3,500 registered attendees from across the San Diego metropolitan area shopping for business resources, developing business leads, gaining new insights, and networking with peers. “Experts tell us that more and more San Diego residents are wanting to take the entrepreneurial leap,” says event founder Zachary Lezberg, “but that the biggest barrier to starting a new business is that people don’t think they can” he adds, “With the program we’ve put together, we believe our attendees will feel more empowered by the end of the day.” This year’s Titanium Sponsor: Powerteam International will be joined by Platinum Sponsor: EmergeAnywhere – Office Space Services, Paychex; Gold Sponsor: AT&T; and Silver Sponsors: 2Growit4ward Foundation, Benchmark Email, Berkman Financial, BizTV/BizTalkRadio, Dealstruck, Dun & Bradstreet, Energy Upgrade California, Misaic, Sprint, U4G, United Vision Marketing Firm, YP Marketing Solutions and ZipLocal.
