OnTheGo entrepreneur Mick Spencer reels in three sharks on Network Ten’s Shark Tank

Mick Spencer, the founder of apparel brand OnTheGo Sports, showed his entrepreneurship to land deals with three of Australia’s leading business heavyweights in front of a national TV audience on Sunday night.

Spencer’s appearance on Channel 10’s Shark Tank saw the 25-year-old founder of OnTheGo negotiate an offer for a 30% stake in his Canberra-based company.

In doing so Spencer lured three ‘sharks’ into the same business deal on a program known for the savaging it can give aspiring entrepreneurs who dare to enter its unpredictable waters.

Those who know Canberra’s Mick Spencer knows two things: Mick is furiously ambitious, and he can milk a Richard Branson reference like few others.

It’s a combination of his personal drive and the inspiration of his Virgin idol that saw Mick enter the Shark Tank – a Channel Ten reality programme that puts budding entrepreneurs up in front of some of the heavy hitters of Australia’s business world

Canberra rally driver Adrian Coppin must think he's walked under a ladder or stumbled across a black cat at his home event.
Last year he was leading the National Capital Rally late in the final day before a wiring issue stopped him in his tracks.
In 2014 he was forced to settle for second, but it has fuelled the fire to finally break through when the event begins on May 27.

The brains behind the ONTHEGO Board

As ONTHEGO is moving into its 5th year, we're taking some big leaps and growing fast. 
As we continue to dream big within the Customised Apparel industry, it's important now more than ever that we have an incredible team at Board level to govern, direct and guide the future path we make. 
I am so excited to have the board formed, as for a sole founder, it can be an extremely lonely journey, and you must have supportive people around you.
