YEC Member Company The Gents Place Wins the Barbara Corcoran Seal of Approval Contest

YEC Member Company The Gents Place, a men's grooming and lifestyle club, was named a winner of the Barbara Corcoran Seal of Approval contest.

YECer Ben Davis, Founder of The Gents Place, joined real estate tycoon and Shark Tank investor Barbara Corcoran in New York for a one-on-one meeting. Additionally, each of the three small business winners won a $10,000 cash prize sponsored by OnDeck, a small-business financing company. Davis was the only winner to have shared the mic with Corcoran on a local Dallas radio show as well as a national Sirius radio show. During these shows, Davis announced the likelihood of starting a franchise in the near future.

Applicants sent a description capturing their business' vision and how they would leverage this opportunity. Corcoran and OnDeck will be checking in with The Gents Place after a length of time to offer further support and mentorship.
