Tennis superstar, Venus Williams is creating a brand new television series that will see women entrepreneurs competing against one another for an investment into their start-up company.
Williams is teaming up with 3 Ball Entertainment for the show which at this time is titled “Deals in Heels.” From the information gathered on the basis of the competitive show, it looks to be a mixture of “The Apprentice,” “The Voice” and “Shark Tank.” Every episode will feature 5 women entrepreneurs, and they will pitch their business to a panel of investors, and the 2 start-ups with the best pitch will move on to the next round. This second round consists of being mentored by people on the panel for a month on strengthening their business and after the month they would return before the panel and pitch their brands again. At this point, a winner would be selected, and receive financial investment.
Venus is very proud of this new project and it quoted by Shadow and Act saying:
“As an advocate for gender and pay equality, I’m thrilled to be working with 3 Ball Entertainment on this project that fosters and supports trailblazing women who are actively pursuing their professional aspirations,”
At this point, the show is not connected to a network.
