Shark Tank in Episode 707
What do you get when combining a Crowdfunding, Match-Making and a Scholarship website together? You get the Village Scholarship's that's coming to the next Shark Tank in Episode 707 this Friday night. The Village Scholarships took the best parts of all three online businesses and created a more enjoyable way applying for scholarships and donating to various types of awards.
The entrepreneurs presenting Village Scholarships to the next Brand New Shark Tank is Antonio Adams and (twin sister) Tasha Adams. Antonio's been on a mission to transform the entire Scholarship process after losing two major athletic scholarship's due to injuries. With no way to pay for college without the athletic scholarship awards, and now growing student debt loans, Adam's was determined to make sure no other students would financially suffer struggling just to graduate from school. The first order of business would be making the College Scholarship process Fun for all parties involved.
Village Scholarships before Shark Tank Episode 707When I first started researching Village Scholarships early last week for this episode of the Shark Tank, the website looked to be getting a make-over on a Wix.com website. Fortunately, the Adam's twins have put a significant amount of work in the site since then, and it's definitely starting to look more like a Shark Tank products type of a site. They might consider, however, upgrading the account to get rid of Wix advertisements before Episode 707's on TV this Friday night. I'm sure Wix.com won't mind all the traffic when the Shark Tank effect takes hold, but might be best keeping visitors attention on why they came to Village Scholarship in the first place. Just a thought.
As far as Village Scholarship's getting a deal on the Shark Tank. Well, is any of the Sharks invested in Wix.com? If so, then that certainly makes a lot of sense for all three parties involved making this Shark Tank deal. But if I had to guess, I'd say it's taken a great deal of strategic planning to make Village Scholarship's a reality, and with not much time to spare, "They Will Be Ready" when Shark Tank Episode 707 airs this Friday night 1/15/2015.
