What if entrepreneurs from around the U.S. had the chance to garner real-life advice from some of America’s best-known CEOs? "Bloomberg The Mentor" tests that concept. Tom Cannon, CEO of BungoBox and a Board Member of Orlando, Inc., experienced it firsthand when Bloomberg TV filmed an episode of "The Mentor" at their warehouse in December.
Tom and Bob, cousins and co-founders of BungoBox, an innovative company that rents plastic, reusable bins as an alternative to cardboard, will star on "Bloomberg The Mentor" on Tuesday, February 21, 2012, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
The show, which is available in more than 310 million homes worldwide (U.S., Europe and Asia), gives budding entrepreneurs the chance to gain expert guidance from CEOs of some of the best known companies in the nation. During the episode, CEO Mark Lore, who sold diapers.com for $570 million, gives Tom and Bob advice on how to scale their innovative business.
"This is a 400-million-dollar-a-year business in boxes," Mark Lore says. But he also reminds Tom and Bob that: "Investors are going to own a larger percentage of the company than you guys will."
"The number one thing limiting our expansion right now is capital," says Bob Cannon.
