If you own a small business, apply to be on this Penn alum’s TV show!

UPenn and Roy Bank and The Mentor and Bloomberg TV
Earlier this week, TV producer Roy Bank (C’94) launched his new NBC gameshow.

Now there’s another show of his that got picked up for a second season and he’s looking for small business owners.  The show is sort of “Apprentice” minus the celebrities and minus the competition.

It’s called “The Mentor” and it hooks up small business owners with top CEOs for “a crash-course mentorship on transforming business dreams into reality”(previous mentors have been executives from Jamba Juice, 1-800-Flowers, Seventh Generation and The Boston Beer Company, Inc.)

I’ve done a ton of stories on Penn alum and undergrad entrepreneurs, so I know there are some of you who are perfect for this.

After the jump, learn more about the show and how to apply!

This 8 episode half-hour series will air on Bloomberg Television and the web and is currently looking for small business owners at through September 26, 2011.

“Ink from Chase invites small businesses from across the nation to apply and submit photos. Small businesses must have a minimum of five full-time employees and be available for production purposes during the months of August through December. All types of small businesses are welcome to apply, including wholesale, retail and online. There will be no direct monetary compensation. For more information on the casting call and to apply, small business owners can visit or check out the Ink from Chase Facebook page.”
