On June 15, 2018, A few members of the 5miles team spent the day backstage and behind the scenes on the set of Shark Tank! Shark Tank shows aspiring entrepreneurs as they make business presentations to a panel of five “shark” investors, who then choose whether to invest as business partners.
5miles guests included: Mark Brinkerhoff, VP of Communications. Natasha August, Product and Partnerships Manager. Garwin Chan, CFO. George Chen, CMO.
Sharks present included: Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, and Sara Blakely.
We are a proud partner of the Dallas Mavericks and attended the 2018 Mavs Ball benefiting the Mavs Foundation. We were excited to participate in the live auction for the Shark Tank experience and win!
All proceeds from the auction benefitted the Dallas Mavericks Foundation, an organization dedicated to serving women, children and families in need across the North Texas area.
