Come Show Us Your Hustle
The Rap Battle of Entrepreneurship
HustleMe is “the rap battle of entrepreneurship”, we host shows that put eight contestants against each other elimination style, leaving the last hustler standing with $1000. Our show breaks down into three rounds; Sell Yourself, Sell Your Biz, and Sell Our Mystery. Check out our web series to learn more here.
Inspired by street art, hip-hop, and downtown hustle. We’re a culture of do instead of a culture of try. This isn’t corner office business. There are no props or slideshows and our hustlers don’t get any backup. It’s going back to the roots of entrepreneurship and asking the simple question “how good is your elevator pitch?”.
Founder and Sales
I’m a serial entrepreneur with a few successes and many failures. I started my career out of highschool, and I’ve had the opportunity to learn to professionally trade financial markets, build international audiences and sell some of my initial ventures. It’s been an awesome journey, and I have tonnes of future plans.
Not satisfied, hands on learner, always striving for more. The traditional learning route just wasn’t for me. I had to take the road less traveled and learn from my mistakes. I started to teach myself about film and camera work, because for me filmmaking gives me the ability to learn and enter into business for myself.
