Daymond John here.
Today, I'm launching a mission to discover our country's next generation of innovators and visionaries.
And I'm recruiting Mainstreet Americans to help me.
You see, what most don't know is that our country's greatest entrepreneurs have always relied on everyday folks to fulfill their destinies.
Without their unsung heroes, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates may have never revolutionized personal computing.
They both founded their multi-trillion-dollar companies, Microsoft and Apple, in their garages.
And both needed the help of Mainstreet Americans to do it. For Gates, it was a man named Dave Marquardt. Steve Jobs had Mike Markkula.
Without the contributions of unsung heroes, Thomas Edison may have never invented the light bulb and the Wright Brothers would've never taken off from Kitty Hawk.
And the chances are somewhere between slim and none you would've heard of Alexander Graham Bell or his invention, the telephone, if not for Gardiner Hubbard, Thomas Sanders, and Thomas Watson.
They had the guts to bet on Bell when he made his first sketch, that became his first patent, that led to the first call he made with his telephone.
By backing this great visionary at the beginning of his story, they became a part of history.
In fact, Bell's very first call was to none other than one of his angel investors – Thomas Watson.
And I believe history is about to repeat itself, only this time you can be a part of the story.
Join me and a small army of Mainstreet Americans and together we'll identify those brave entrepreneurs who are building amazing startups in their garages, dorm rooms, laboratories, and small factories.
If our mission is a success, we could help these visionaries create hundreds of thousands of high-paying jobs while revolutionizing industries.
And for those who help these startups win, generational wealth could be the reward.
This mission is very personal to me, because without my unsung hero, I would've never been able to grow my $40 startup into a $6 billion fashion empire.
I launched it in my mother's basement, and I couldn't have accomplished what I did without my first angel investor.
- I'm putting my money on the table, $100,000 to be exact, to help these entrepreneurs make their American Dreams come true.
- Join me and maybe yours will as well.
