Event Title: Six Degrees Society NYC Presents Life After Shark Tank: An Intimate Fireside chat with the Solemates Founders
Have you ever seen Shark Tank and thought, "how did they get here?" or, "what sort of prep went into this?" and, "what happens after they're done filming?". Solemates founders, Becca Brown and Monica Ferguson, can show you! Solemates is a footwear solutions brand, whose patented high heel cap was featured on Shark Tank (no more sinking into grass or getting stuck in cracks). In this fireside chat, the founders of Solemates will sit down with our SDS ambassador for an intimate look into the journey of fundraising, getting Shark Tank famous, and what happens next.
Before we sit down for our programming, each guest will get 2 curated 15 minute connections handpicked just for them based on bios submitted pre-event here https://goo.gl/forms/jIgWxZIo1oFsDZSM2.
