Nobody becomes a success overnight. True entrepreneurship requires dedication day in and day out—but it also requires some help along the way.

That’s why Daymond John’s Success Formula is offering a Scholarship. It’s designed to empower young entrepreneurs who show great promise and who aren’t willing to back down no matter the challenges.

“I consistently encourage students not to wait for the “perfect time” to peruse an education,” said Daymond. “You will wait forever. Always take advantage of the time that you’re given and make it perfect for you.”

Daymond John is best known as a co-star and investor on ABC’s Emmy Award-winning Shark Tank. The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage college students to develop and hone their skills and turning their entrepreneurial passions into promising careers.
