          Oxygen gets down to business with “Quit Your Day Job,” an immersive new docuseries exploring the exciting world of entrepreneurship through the leadership of tech mogul Randi Zuckerberg, consumer products tycoon Ido Leffler, start-up advocate Sarah Prevette, and master marketer Lauren Maillian. The eight-episode series features aspiring millennial entrepreneurs who receive the life-changing opportunity to pitch themselves and their innovative ideas to the angel financiers.

          The investment club will use their business expertise, industry knowledge, and creative vision to determine which up-and-coming products have the potential to be the next big thing. The investors will provide on-site, hands-on mentoring to the young professionals, who must prove they have what it takes to turn their concept into a viable business.

          In each hour-long episode, the investors surprise everyday entrepreneurs in person to see if they really have the drive, ambition, and commitment to take their products to the next level. Based on the experts’ observations and feedback, two start-ups with the most potential advance to the final round, where they are put through a field test to convince the investors that they are worthy of their financial backing and mentorship.

          After intense deliberations, the investors reveal if one, both, or neither of the prospective businesses will receive a commitment of funds. The caveat: All four investors must unanimously agree in order for a business to receive their venture capital. This high-stakes series proves that you don’t need an MBA to have a good idea . . . you need passion, hard work, and the drive to do whatever it takes to succeed.
