New Reality TV - Where Entrepreneurs and Investors Unite


Live the American dream, the scope of future television entertainment is about to change!

This new concept of combining reality TV with crowdsourcing, is more involved than the show "Shark Tank,” as there is more interaction as well as, audience participation.

Topics include equity investment, crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, entrepreneurs, equity investment, web responsive, mobile technology, and more.

This show allows viewers an opportunity to get involved with the newest and latest innovations!

Be a part of the show by using your mobile and web devices to see the company’s spreadsheet projections, interviews, valuations and more.

Participate in equity crowdfunding investments with a new technology called text investing.

This is the ultimate interaction between startups, investors, the audience and our partner companies, such as Marriott and Microsoft.

The Startup Hour will quickly become one of the fastest growing reality shows on television.

Filming begins this month in two of eight cities, with a high concentration of entrepreneurial culture.

Entrepreneurs from all over the country are invited to share their business vision. 

Production begins in Austin Texas at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, March 13 -15. 

Founders interested in being featured on the show can register at ( for future dates.

We have a panel of highly accomplished entrepreneurs that will meet in San Francisco. The panel of esteemed judges will review and select the top 50 startups for season one.

Six companies will go head to head and present their business models in front of a national audience. The judges will analyze, challenge and offer helpful feedback to each entrepreneur.   The focus is in emerging markets. 

The entrepreneur who raises the most capital for their startup in the shortest amount of time will be crowned the week's business star.

If you are the founder of a business, have an idea or looking for a source of funding, The Startup Hour is the place you want to be!

We know you’re careful about what you eat at meal times—lots of veggies, healthy protein, complex carbs. But snack time can be tricky because many “healthy” snack bars out there are loaded with sugar and calories or packed with preservatives and other ingredients concocted in a lab, not a kitchen.
