‘Shark Tank’ at the White House: Daymond John Named Entrepreneurship Ambassador

Daymond John, an investor on the reality series “Shark Tank,” was one of nine business founders named presidential ambassadors for global entrepreneurship by the White House on Monday.

John, CEO of FUBU and Shark Branding, and the cast of “Shark Tank” were at the White House for a ceremony in which President Barack Obama marked the expansion of the program, which is designed to promote entrepreneurship. Others named ambassadors include Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky and Glodie Blox CEO Debbie Sterling. The program is chaired by Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker.

Each presidential ambassador agrees to develop an initiative that includes providing new entrepreneurs with the chance to draw capital, talent and education.

Tory Burch and Steve Case were among the ambassadors named when the program was launched last year.
