Million Dollar Scholar Wins $20,000 at Tap The Future Miami
Last evening Miami witnessed four teams of entrepreneurs pitch their business in an effort to win $20,000 at the Miller Lite Tap the Future live pitch event. Teams took the stage of Nikki Beach to impress the audience and a panel of renowned judges, including Daymond John from ABC’s “Shark Tank.”
Three teams from Illinois and one team from Alabama presented their ideas, but at the end it was Derrius Quarles and Ras Asan who swept away the judges with Million Dollar Scholar. This business from Chicago created technology that delivers financial-aid education and resources to assist high school and college students from disadvantaged areas to gain scholarships. Pending background checks, Quarles and Asan will receive $20,000 for their business and advance to the final round of Miller Lite Tap the Future to compete for the grand prize of $200,000.
