Shark Tank Meets Main Street - US Cellular

One of my husband’s favorite shows is Shark Tank.  I think there is something about having a product or idea and being able to work at your passion and be your own boss that appeals to everyone.  It is part of the American Dream, isn’t it; to be your own boss and an entrepreneur?


Last year, US Cellular launched the “Spotlight on America’s Backbone” contest which invited small businesses in the company’s footprint to enter to win free advertising, cash, and a year of wireless service to help grow their business.  



To further show their commitment to business owners, U.S. Cellular expanded on that this year and gave consumers more access to tools and support to help grow their business or make their entrepreneurial dreams come true by working with ABC’s “Shark Tank.”

Currently there is an amazing sweepstakes, open for entry now!

This sweepstakes will provide customers in the U.S. Cellular footprint the opportunity to gain unprecedented access to the casting call process, hear tips and advice from other small business owners.


One lucky winner will win an exclusive behind-the-scenes Shark Tank experience, which includes a VIP seat during the entire pitch process in LA, lunch with the casting team and opportunities to engage the Sharks throughout the day to ask any burning questions, including how he/she can further their business if the winner is a business owner.

Along with the Sweepstakes, consumers can visit Americasbackbone.com  to view custom content that will cover both a behind-the-scenes look at the Shark Tank casting process, what happens after you get funded, along with stories from real entrepreneurs.

US Cellular is committed to the people and businesses in their markets.  Providing access to Shark Tank is just one way the company shows their commitment to the communities US Cellular services.

Winners will be selected between November 1st and November 14th.  The announcement of the winner will be between November 17th and November 21st.

Do you have an amazing business idea?   Is this the push you need to perhaps throw your product or idea into the ring?  What is holding you back?
