Tennis superstar and entrepreneur Venus Williams will soon be a regular on television as she is set to be the executive producer and star in a new business series called Deals In Heels.
She alongside a panel of other female entrepreneurs will serve as mentors to five talented business women who will pitch their business/investment ideas.
According to Deadline:
The two women whose businesses show the most promise will be invited up to the “executive suite” for a deeper dive into their companies.
If their business plans measure up, the panel will dedicate one month toward mentoring the entrepreneurs on all aspects of their businesses in preparation for critical upcoming sales benchmarks – which could make or break the companies. At the end of the month, the two entrepreneurs return to the executive suite to re-pitch, but after review and negotiations, only one startup will receive an investment from the panel.
Speaking on the project, Venus Williams said;
“As an advocate for gender and pay equality, I’m thrilled to be working with 3 Ball Entertainment on this project that fosters and supports trailblazing women who are actively pursuing their professional aspirations.”
The other executive producers on Deals In Heels include Staness Jonekos, an award-winning television producer and CEO, and Deborah Perry Piscone, a Silicon Valley-based entrepreneur, author and public speaker.
I love Venus so this should be very interesting, comment below and let me know if you would watch!
