The Miller Lite “Tap the Future” pitch event made a stop in Los Angeles on June 27. Several entrepreneurs got a chance to pitch their business and direct feedback from judges who have established business credentials.
Daymond John of ABC’s “Shark Tank” took a moment to discuss the importance of Miller Lite’s “Tap the Future” pitch event. He spoke with rolling out after the competition.
“We’re getting to invest in people’s future. Unlike the show that I’m on [‘Shark Tank’] where we take a percentage of the company, what’s valuable about Miller Lite ‘Tap The Future’ is that we are giving money to individuals for start-up capital. That’s free capital and they don’t have to give up a percentage of the company. As well as people in the local market are seeing how it is to pitch first hand. It’s the tough questions and great presentation. It’s people creating jobs, making people happy and changing lives,” John said.
