About Steve Harvey’s FUNDERDOME

“Steve Harvey’s FUNDERDOME is a seed-funding competition reality series where two budding entrepreneurs go head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products or companies. The audience represents the ‘customer’ and, as the customer is always right, they vote to determine the winner. But the entrepreneurs will face a major dilemma: one of them is allowed to cash out and walk away for less money. But if an entrepreneur cashes out, they forgo the opportunity to win the whole cash prize for that round—a good move if they lost the crowd vote, but a bad move if they would have won it.”

“I wouldn’t have the courage to pursue my dreams without your unwavering support and belief in what we do at Fedwell. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for helping me reach this exciting milestone,” writes Lagasse.
