NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Daymond John, the founder and CEO of FUBU and co-star of ABC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning show “Shark Tank,” just wrapped up his inaugural Black Entrepreneurs Day presented by Chase for Business. In conjunction with Medium Rare (Shaq vs. Gronk), Black Entrepreneurs Day was a historic live-stream generating over six million live viewers from all 50 states and over 100 countries.
Black Entrepreneurs Day presented by Chase for Business utilized its platform to share stories that were as informative as they were inspiring. Those streaming from home had the opportunity to glean insight from personal triumphs and tribulations accounted for in the Game Changer Conversations, presented by The General® Insurance. Daymond John helmed these one-on-one conversations with Black business leaders including Shaquille O’Neal, Gabrielle Union, Robert Johnson, LL Cool J, Ice-T, Arlan Hamilton, Elicia Azali, and Brian Lamb, plus an incredible Robinhood Roundtable featuring Dwayne Wade. In addition, the event featured incredible musical performances from Chance The Rapper, Questlove, and DJ Diesel.
The event was recorded in a custom Black Entrepreneurs Day studio in New York City and broadcasted across Facebook, plus nearly a dozen other social media platforms as Daymond’s guests joined virtually thanks to the event’s partner Cisco Webex. Viewers at home were provided the opportunity to participate by soliciting answers to their own entrepreneurship questions via event partner Yappa.
