The students take their salesmanship skills to the streets of San Francisco on an all-new episode of Startup U, airing on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 at 10PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
In “Bro’s & Bras,” it’s Evangelism Week! During the week, students are taught how to become experts at selling their brand. Tim puts everyone in yet another challenging situation when he sends them to San Francisco to sell men and women’s underwear to the many shoppers in Union Square. However, there’s a catch. They have to sell the undergarments based solely on a picture — not an actual product. Frustrated by the process, Tony makes a decision that irritates Sequoia and his classmates. Sharon meets with resistance when she pitches Hotpoint to various venues around the Bay Area, only to have things get tougher when Tim puts her in the hot seat. Meanwhile, Michael Volpatt (Partner, Larkin/Volpatt Communications) and Charlie meet with several students to evaluate their brands.
Jenn Hyman (Co-Founder, Rent-The-Runway) and Michael Volpatt (Partner, Larkin/Volpatt Communications) appear as guest experts.
