This could be interesting

I think this could be interesting, and could be very beneficial to society - Simon Cowell And Are Teaming Up To Create An X Factor To Find The Next Mark Zuckerberg starts:

Simon Cowell is on the hunt for the next Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates. According to The Sun, the former American Idol and current X Factor judge is teaming up with Black Eyed Peas rapper to find the next hot tech entrepreneur.

Details are sparse on when the show will debut and the exact format, but if the tech-focused show is anything like X Factor, it sounds like would-be entrepreneurs will be pitching their ideas to an all-star panel of judges. It also appears that the show will be based in the UK.

As told The Sun, “Singing and performance create a couple of jobs. But this will create lots…It’s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves — whether that’s in science or mathematics.”

It sounds similar to the entrepreneur-focused reality show Shark Tank, except with a tech-focused twist.
