MORE ABOUT THE SHOW:
TUESDAYS 10P ET/PT
Tune in to the series premiere of WEST TEXAS INVESTORS CLUB, Tuesday, August 4 at 10p ET/PT on CNBC.
CNBC revealed the 16 entrepreneurs appearing on the new series, “West Texas Investors Club,” premiering Tuesday, August 4th at 10pm ET/PT. Set deep in the heart of Texas, the eight-episode series features self-made multimillionaires Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam who have chosen to pass on their success by investing in promising entrepreneurs – but only on their turf and their terms.
Along with their close friend and confidante Gil Prather, Rooster and Butch invite ambitious entrepreneurs from across the country to come down to Midland, Texas and make their case. These folks know that they’re getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to secure funding…but what they don’t know is that clever products and beautiful balance sheets will only get you so far with these investors. Rooster and Butch won’t make a deal until they’ve peered into your heart and soul – and taken the true measure of your character.
On the series premiere, a young entrepreneur pitches Rooster and Butch on an app that could revolutionize the bar scene. The investors are intrigued by the financial potential… and the prospect of getting their drinks faster. Later, two best friends present a device that promises to reduce contact with germs.
