Greg Norman is looking for the next great sports entrepreneur.
The Hall of Fame golfer has partnered with the University of Miami on “Greg Norman’s Shark Tank,” a new platform that allows applicants from around the world to submit ideas about a new product, start-up or current business looking to expand.
If selected, the budding entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators will have a chance to present to Norman and his panel at the University of Miami Sport Industry Conference on March 24, 2017. With a 5-minute pitch followed by a 25-minute Q&A with Norman, they’ll get a chance to receive the financial backing and investment needed to jump start their venture.
“As an entrepreneur and business owner myself, I find great satisfaction in giving others the chance to fulfill their dreams,” said Norman, whose portfolio of interests include golf course design, real estate, interior design, investments, wine, clothing, eyewear, beef and restaurants. “This platform allows me to do just that and I look forward to hopefully investing in the next great undiscovered business.”
