Do you have an idea you think Mark Cuban or Daymond John would invest in? Start practicing your business pitch.

Fayetteville consulting firm Startup Junkie is teaming up with ABC to host a casting call for Season 11 of “Shark Tank,” a TV series that gives entrepreneurs a chance to pitch their product to investors. It’s on Saturday, April 13, at the Exchange at 409 S.W. A St. in Bentonville.

“Startup Junkie knows that Northwest Arkansas is full of incredible entrepreneurs with great products and services,” the company said in a statement. “That’s why when we met the Shark Tank casting team, we couldn’t resist inviting them to Northwest Arkansas.”

Numbered wristbands will be distributed to participants from 9-11 a.m. Participants will get one minute to pitch their business or idea to a member of the show’s casting team, and those interviews will begin at 10 a.m.

To pitch, though, participants must have completed an application beforehand. Those are available at this link.

Participants will not be allowed to line up outside the Exchange before 7 a.m. the day of the casting call.
