In the previous post, I promised you I would tell you what personal branding made me do. So here we are and let’s get into it. First, let me situate you into the context. I am a student at EMLYON Business School called Mcs in Global Entrepreneurship & Innovation (and for short GEP). During this program we have the privilege of learning about entrepreneurship and innovations in Europe, China and the US. We talk about things that stand out, things that are different and creative.
Personal branding is one of the things that stood out for me since we started doing pitches on different projects in China. As it happens, there is a show devoted entirely to pitching to powerful investors and getting funding (or not) for an idea. You might have heard of it – Shark Tank.
Just for those that are interested in watching more pitches in front of investors, there is another show, called Dragon’s Den. I believe it is the British version of the Shark Tank. People have recommended it to me so feel free to check it out.
Back to Shark Tank!
On the photo you can see the hugely successful businessmen and businesswomen that judge entrepreneurs’ ideas and decide whether they want to invest into their projects. The first on top left corner is Daymond John. After having watched (almost) countless Shark Tank episodes, his name definitely stayed with me.
And so when a schoolmate shared a link to his event, I had one thought and that one only – “I am going”.
To find out whether I went to his event read my next blog post!
Until next time…
