Crain’s Detroit Business
May 15, 2023
Mark Cuban, the entrepreneur, NBA owner and star of CNBC’s “Shark Tank” show, has been added as a speaker at the Mackinac Policy Conference, which begins later this month.
The Detroit Regional Chamber, which runs the annual policy conference on Mackinac Island, said Monday that Cuban would appear at the conference Wednesday, May 31. He is scheduled to be introduced by Detroit Pistons Vice Chairman Arn Tellem and will be interviewed onstage by Crain Communications Inc. President and CEO KC Crain.
Among Cuban’s endeavors has been running artificial intelligence “boot camps” around the country through his foundation.
Cuban made his initial fortune through the 1999 sale of Broadcast.com to Yahoo Inc. for $5.7 billion. He bought the Mavericks in January 2000. He’s appeared on the business pitch show “Shark Tank” as one of the show’s investors since 2011.
Other major speakers set for the conference include Bank of America Inc. Chairman and CEO Brian Moynihan, former U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, and CNN host Fareed Zakaria.
