Tyra Banks is headed back to television, she’s snagged a new competition show…
The name of the show is called ‘Funded’ and Tyra Banks along with Fantasy Factory Rob Dyrdek and Rohan Oza are set to be business mentors.
The President of Universal Television Meredith Ahr says:
“Rob, Tyra and Rohan offer a level of business experience and expertise that is priceless to a burgeoning entrepreneur. They are perfectly suited to be at the helm of this series as it sets out to shine a light on extraordinary start-ups, provide invaluable guidance to innovators and give financial backing to the most deserving and revolutionary ideas that will shape our future,” said Ahr.
According to Variety.com
In each episode, start-up companies will be paired with one of the three mentors — brand ambassador, media mogul and former supermodel Banks; venture capitalist Dyrdek; or brand builder Oza. At the end of each episode, the start-ups and their mentors will face a venture capitalist in front of a live audience and convince them that their company could be the next great company if they get the fund’s backing and that $1 million cash infusion. Only one start-up per episode can get funded.
Funded is set to air on NBC, no date and time has been announced.
