Kent Griswold, a board member of Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, is one of the creators of “Wolf PAC of Philadelphia,” a new Amazon Prime competitor to the popular “Shark Tank,” writes Kennedy Rose for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
Filmed in Philadelphia, the show focuses on promoting local businesses. Over the four episodes, Philadelphia-area business experts and investors— the titular pack of “Wolves”—will provide advice and capital to entrepreneurs from the Philadelphia area who are looking to grow their companies.
Griswold and his co-creator, stand-up comedian and television producer Craig Shoemaker, want the show to serve both as an entertainment platform and an educational tool that can be helpful to small business owners.
In addition to members of the “Wolf PAC,” of which Griswold is a member, the show will feature mentors, including some big names from the region such as former Eagles players Seth Joyner and Brian Dawkins.
However, unlike “Shark Tank,” this show has everybody working together to help the featured businesses.
“Wolf PAC of Philadelphia” will premiere on Amazon Prime on January 12.
