A quote from the press release from PBA Newsletter!
A first of its kind, the Beauty Pitch offers up-and-coming and established companies alike the unique opportunity to present their brand, products or ideas to a panel of top investors including renowned entrepreneurs Mark Cuban and John Paul DeJoria. Five finalists will have the chance to pitch to the panel live as part of PBA’s Business Forum on July 12, 2015, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. One winner will receive a one-year mentor ship from Mark Cuban and / or another will receive possible funding from a reputable private equity firm.
What???? March Cuban and John Paul DeJoria?????
Marc Cuban is a American business man, owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theatres, and Magnolia Pictures, and the chairman of the HDTV cable network AXS TV. He is also a “shark” investor on the television series Shark Tank.
If you didn’t know, Marc Cuban was the key note speaker at CosmoProf last year during PBA’s Business Forum. His return will help us with his business acumen and help him to better understand the industry in which he has interest in three companies.
John Paul DeJoria? Simply said, “Paul Mitchell!”
A billionaire philanthropist , and my favorite one, motorcycle enthusiast! Ok, that was just for me! Needless to say that with a quote such as
Success Unshared is Failure
he is definitely a man to follow.
