Local entrepreneur gets “Shark” shout-out

A week before Shark Tank’s casting crews came to Knoxville, local entrepreneur Charles Brown, founder of No Quotes, got a Twitter shout-out from none other than Daymond John.

John, a fashion mogul who started the clothing and hip hop apparel company FUBU, is part of the Shark Tank cast and took time to meet one-on-one with Brown at a Game Changer meeting.

On April 20, John tweeted sporting a No Quotes hat.

Because he already had contact with a Shark, Brown was exempt from participating in Knoxville’s casting call on Thursday.

More on Brown and his efforts to come.
