In the guest chair:
The CEO of American Dream Launcher Steve Gordon joined us in the studio to debunk the pitching and investing we see on ABC’s The Shark Tank. Steve said some of what you see on TV is the same in real life, but a lot of what we’re seeing is for entertainment. He also reminded us that even when they “make a deal” on Shark Tank, there is still a due diligence that takes place, so if the numbers don’t work as described, the deal doesn’t happen.
Kevin Hatfield, co-President of Hailo North America also joined us to break news on super cheap pricing for Atlanta!
In the headlines:
- Atlanta startup Voxa (headed up by Johnson Cook who was on the show back in August) has raised 2.5 million in investment capital.
- AT&T has agreed to pay $105 million back to customers who may have unwittingly been charged for third party junk they didn’t want.
- Comcast has really done it this time. They have allegedly gotten someone fired for complaining about their service.
- Some sad news on the Atlanta arts and culture scene… the Georgia Shakespeare company is closing it’s doors due to overwhelming debt.
- And remember the lawsuit filed by Ubiquitous Entertainment saying that the deal between Fort Mac and Tyler Perry was unfair? Well, it’s been thrown out of court. At least for now.
