Nominated for Boston's Shark Tank!

Jegman has been nominated (out of many) to pitch to Boston's very own sharks aka "no BS" investors. Six selected startups will win a share of $100,000 to invest in the growth of their businesses. For all of you familiar with ABC's, Shark Tank, featuring Daymond John, Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary and Robert Herjavec, the pitch will be organized exactly the same. Sponsored by BzzAgent and FutureM, the competition will be stiff. Surprisingly, we're one of the few companies not focused on tech. Actually (don't quote us), we might be the only fashion brand to present. We'll double check that fact... In the mean time, please support us by telling the sharks (via Twitter) why they should invest in jegman! Here's the list of investors w/ their Twitter accounts, be sure to use this hashtag #bostonsharks:

  • @ktrae - Katie Rae- Managing Director, TechStars Boston
  • @DaveBalter - Dave Balter- Founder and CEO, BzzAgent
