STUCK’s Jerry Jendusa will be returning to the panelist table for the second season of Project Pitch It, Milwaukee’s own version of Shark Tank. Joined by fellow business moguls David Gruber, Tina Chang, Nancy Hernandez, Deb Allen, Jim Lindberg, and Peter Feigin, they will listen to a total of 24 different local entrepreneurs pitch their business idea. These contestants will have the ability to have their products evaluated, ask questions, and win prizes.
As a passionate entrepreneur, Jerry is not only excited to help the show’s contestants, but he hopes the show will inspire other local entrepreneurs. For him, the value behind the show aligns with the entrepreneurial mindset. “Nothing happens unless first there is a dream. Entrepreneurs are courageous and bold by nature,” Jerry said. “The passion for why they do what they do is contagious, and our hope is that by hearing their stories it will help other entrepreneurs have the willingness to chase their dreams.”
The second season of Project Pitch It will premiere on WISN-TV (Milwaukee), WBAY (Green Bay), WISC (Madison), WKBT (La Crosse), and WSAW/WZAW (Wausau) on Saturdays at 6:30 starting mid-February.
Season two will feature three inspiring entrepreneurs per episode. A preview of some of the innovations are included below.
The following podcast features Producer Dean Maytag. Join him as he talks about the inspiration behind the show, what it hopes to achieve, how to get on the show, and an overview of the moguls.
