Enter the Shark Tank Sweepstakes & Meet the Sharks!

Shark Tank Sweepstakes

Have you ever secretly wondered what it would be like to get a behind-the-scenes peek of the ABC television show Shark Tank? If so, stick around because I have an opportunity for you to not only do just that, but also meet with show insiders and watch entrepreneurs make their pitches! Exciting, right? I have personally watched only a few episodes of Shark Tank, but boy is it intense and exciting and I can only imagine how stressful it must be for the guests who are pitching their products to the “sharks”. If you have ever watched the show I’m sure you know what I mean and if you haven’t seen Shark Tank you really need to check it out because who knows, it might just spark a little creativity and inspire you to come up with your own big idea for an amazing product.

Shark Tank Meets Main Street Thanks to U.S. Cellular

Did you know that last year U.S. Cellular launched the Spotlight on America’s Backbone contest which encouraged small businesses in the company’s footprint to enter to win free advertising, money and 12 months of wireless service to help increase the size of their business? To further show their dedication to business owners, U.S. Cellular expanded on that this year and provided consumers with more access to tools and encouragement to help grow their business or make their entrepreneurial goals a reality by working with ABC’s Shark Tank.

The first phase included casting calls, which took place several months ago, when U.S. Cellular arranged access to the nighttime show through a selection tour solely within their footprint, providing small businesses the chance to pitch their business, product or idea for an opportunity to present it to the Sharks on Shark Tank, for a national television audience.

Shadow Shark Tank Sweepstakes!

The second, and probably most exciting phase, is the sweepstakes, and you can enter now! This is where U.S. Cellular customers like YOU have the chance to win unique access to the casting call process and listen to tips and advice from small business owners. One lucky person will win the opportunity of a lifetime when they get to go behind-the-scenes and experience Shark Tank like never before, which includes a VIP seat throughout the entire pitch process in LA, lunch with the casting team and chances to talk to the Sharks during the day and ask questions, like how you can grow your business if you win and you’re a business owner.

Check out this behind-the-scenes video of what a Shark Tank Casting Call looks like!

So tell me, how would you like to be there to IN PERSON to experience Shark Tank first hand? Just go to americasbackbone.com or shadowsharktank.com to learn more about U.S. Cellular’s commitment to small business owners and to enter the Shadow Shark Tank sweepstakes for a chance to win a one-of-a-kind experience for you and a guest! What are you waiting for? You have until the end of October to enter, so hurry up and go, go, go!
