MILWAUKEE — ABC’s “Shark Tank” is hosting an open casting call on July 21 in Milwaukee for entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas to a panel of potential investors.

The casting call will be at the Milwaukee Art Museum, 700 N. Art Museum Drive. Wristbands are distributed starting at 9 a.m., and interviews begin at 10 a.m., according to a statement.

The first 500 entrepreneurs who show up at the open call are guaranteed to be seen and will pitch the “Shark Tank” casting team with their products, services or ideas, the statement said.

“We know great ideas come from everywhere, so we’re excited to hit the road this summer with U.S. Cellular to hear from entrepreneurs in and around Milwaukee,” said Clay Newbill, “Shark Tank” executive producer.

“We are eager to hear all of the unique ideas that will come through this casting call.”
