AMERICAN GNUITY

Blow-up Your Business -- be a contestant on the reality TV show that offers . . .

· world-class mentoring
· national exposure
· additional capital

Pitch your business/idea at one of these Regional Audition in Salt Lake City, Utah May 16 & 17

To register go to www.AmericanGnuity.com American Gnuity – Biz Reality TV Show where Up and Coming Businesses are the Stars

This TV series is designed to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams by providing them with greater exposure, top-notch mentoring, and excellent opportunities for funding via crowd funding and accredited investors.

The series consists of three different phases:

1. The Pitch
The show scans the country looking for the best new ideas and products. American Gnuity finds the projects ready for TV at four regional events. Contestants make their 2-3 minute pitches in front of the show’s experienced judges who comment and either invite the contestants to continue to compete on the show or asks contestants to keep trying online. As many as ten contestants at each event will receive Gnuity Jumpstart Awards of between $1,000 and $10,000.

Those who make pitches but don’t receive Gnuity Jumpstart Awards can still compete online and still earn a spot as a finalist. Others who can’t make it to live pitch events can also compete online. Finalists are determined advances companies make while involved with the show via social media traction, sales, pledges, investments, deals, production, distribution, and overall customer satisfaction.

2. The Accelerator
American Gnuity’s 20 Finalists will have the opportunity to work with some of the business world’s finest mentors. During the 8 week Gnuity Accelerator each team/business will be put to the test, broken down, encouraged and built back up. Mentors are there to help with advice, contacts, and experience. Those who stay in the game get their businesses weeks of national exposure, raise capital, and any flaws in their business will receive intense mentoring. This is where good ideas become great businesses, where good leaders become “biz rock stars.”

3. The Prize
The series culminates with 3 contestants being crowned American Gnuinty Champions, most likely getting some kind of multimillion dollar offers, but there’s a twist that could have a profound effect on the Champions and the audience. To register go to www.AmericanGnuity.com
