Entrepreneurs Compete in Centric’s ‘Queen Boss’
Centric TV announced that they are introducing a new reality competition series in January called Queen Boss. The series will focus on Black women entrepreneurs in the United States and have them compete for an outstanding business opportunity.
The 8-episode series will be hosted by media mogul, television personality and business woman Tracey Edmonds. Edmonds is the Emmy-winning co-host of Extra and a television and film producer.
Each episode will have 3 new Black women entrepreneurs who will enter the “Queen Boss Conference Room” to pitch their ideas and products. Those pitches will then be judged by a celebrity panel that includes Vanessa Simmons, Lauren Lake, Kandi Burruss, Carla Hall, Mikki Taylor, Lisa Price, Rakia Reynolds, Angela Benton and Robin Wilson.
In the first round of the competition, after the three entrepreneurs present their products to the judges, one of the contestants will be eliminated. The two remaining contestants will compete against each other by executing a business challenge ranging from elevator pitches, out-trading local professionals in New York City, and creating viral marketing campaigns on social media.
Six winners will be chosen and advance to the final round where they will ultimately compete for the grand prize of $25,000, also known as the “Queen Boss Start-Up Fund,” that will help get their business started.
