Earlier this week, TV producer Roy Bank (C'94) launched his new NBC gameshow.
Now there's another show of his that got picked up for a second season and he's looking for small business owners. The show is sort of "Apprentice" minus the celebrities and minus the competition.
It's called "The Mentor" and it hooks up small business owners with top CEOs for "a crash-course mentorship on transforming business dreams into reality"(previous mentors have been executives from Jamba Juice, 1-800-Flowers, Seventh Generation and The Boston Beer Company, Inc.)
I've done a ton of stories on Penn alum and undergrad entrepreneurs, so I know there are some of you who are perfect for this.
After the jump, learn more about the show and how to apply!
