Looking for your business’s next big break? These auditions may be for you.


Business publication Inc. is teaming up with ShoulderUp, a production company run by Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis and entrepreneur Phyllis Newhouse, to give women business owners the floor by way of a new TV show.


Not the chaotic trading floor, as the show’s title – “Women of Wall Street” – might imply. It will, instead, focus on giving women entrepreneurs a chance to pitch for bigger, brighter futures. Think “Shark Tank” – but by women, and for women. (Selected entrepreneurs will be invited to present their ventures at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New York City, though.)
