On Season 13 of Shark Tank, four former college students from Chicago, Illinois, Charles Matthews, Hunter Pomerantz, Austin Pomerantz, and Jason Lansing, pitch their online marketplace, The Players Trunk.
All four entrepreneurs are graduates of the University of Michigan, with the exception of one of the Pomerantz brothers, who went to Syracuse. Big sports schools both.
The Players Trunk is designed to help current and past college athletes cash in on their fame. It’s a website where they can sell/auction off their gear, collectibles, and merchandise.
On The Players Trunk Instagram profile, it says the company is endorsed by NBA legend Dwyane Wade, who skipped his senior year at Marquette to enter the 2003 NBA Draft. Although Wade didn’t graduate, Marquette retired his jersey in 2007.
Shark Tank airs Fridays at 8 pm on ABC, right before 20/20 at 9 pm. [BONUS: Stream any ABC show through the ABC GO Digital App found here. Download is FREE.]
