Variety reports that Tyra Banks, former Top Model host and proud owner of one very exaggerated certificate from Harvard Business School, will star as a “mentor” to would-be entrepreneurs on Funded, NBC’s answer to Shark Tank. Hopefully this time nobody ends up addicted to meth or murdered in a triple-homicide!
Baratunde Thurston interviewed Issa Rae for his AOL web series Funded to figure out how she got so damn famous. If you're familiar with Rae's story, none of it is brand new information, but if you're not, it's a good overview. As Thurston explains, "From YouTube to HBO: that's a good story."
