Published Thursday, April 26, 2018

The University of Notre Dame welcomed ‘Shark Tank’ star Daymond John on Thursday night (April 26) as he gave one of the 2018 IDEA Week keynote speeches.

John, FUBU clothing line creator, talked to the crowd on the University of Notre Dame campus about the qualities of a SHARK:

  • Set goals
  • Do your homework
  • Amor (love; have passion for what you do)
  • Remember your brand
  • Keep swimming

He spoke about lessons he learned during his time with FUBU and the ABC show ‘Shark Tank.’

“You go, and you pitch it, you may not win today but you sharpen your ax on how to cut down that tree a little more accurately by learning from the tough competition,” he said.

John is set to help judge the university’s 17thannual McCloskey New Venture Competition, where students and community members will pitch their business ideas just like many people do on ‘Shark Tank.’
