For those of you who love Shark Tank, get ready for Apple’s Planet of the Apps. I don’t know why I was so surprised when I first heard about it. This show makes total sense.
There are over two million apps available on iOS (iPhone). Both young and old Americans are creating new ones every day. Several contemporaries of mine have also been busy developing apps as a second career. They are having more fun than ever before.
Friends tell me there is no official word whether this show will look like Shark Tank or focus on individual developers. One thing is for sure. Those entrepreneurs who get on the show will have access to some of the biggest investors and advisors in the world.
The mentors who are scheduled so far are: actress and entrepreneur Jessica Alba; hip hop recording artist, musician and record producer Will.i.am; actress, singer, and food writer Gwyneth Paltrow; and entrepreneur, investor, author, public speaker, and internet personality Gary Vaynerchuk.
