Quit Your Day Job is a new reality TV show that follows four investors looking for the next big thing among a pool of hungry, entrepreneuring millennials. On the first episode “Unbeweavable,” the investors — Ido Leffler, Sarah Prevette, Lauren Maillian, and Randi Zuckerberg — are pitched three ideas but they can’t invest in all of them. To help them decide, the investors challenge the entrepreneurs to prove that their ideas can work and that they have what it takes to bring their ideas to fruition.
