Pitch your firm for TV's 'Shark Tank' at NextFab May 11

NextFab Studio, the way-cool fancy-tools warehouse that's expanded from UCity to its big new site at 2025 Washington Ave. in South Philly, says ABC-TV's Shark Tank "entrepreneurship reality" TV show will hold "a nationwide open audition" on Saturday May 11, with places assigned to teams arriving 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.

"The first 500 entrepreneurs to arrive at the audition are guaranteed to be interviewed and will pitch the Shark Tank casting team with their products, services or ideas," says NextFab's Itsuki Ogihara. This will be "the only casting call location in the Northeast."

NextFab offers training in preparing your pitch: Tuesday April 30, 5 to 8 p.m., and Saturday May 4, 5 to 8 p.m.  More info at http://nextfabstudio.com/shark-tank and  http://abc.go.com/shows/shark-tank/
