Jared Joyce, a Bozeman resident, will appear on this Friday's episode of ABC's hit series "Shark Tank." Joyce, a professional inventor, will stand before the Sharks to pitch his "Five Minute Furniture" invention, a patented furniture system that enables quick and easy assembly with no tools required.
This opportunity is a huge accomplishment for any aspiring inventor/entrepreneur, as Jared is one of only 52 people out of over 20,000 applicants to have his moment with the Sharks and see it air on national television.

The episode will air on ABC this Friday, February 24 at 8pm/7c.

Additionally, to celebrate, Jared Joyce and Montana State University will host a live streaming party this Friday at the University's Procrastinator Theater from 6-10pm. Following the episode's airing, Jared will participate in a Q-&-A session and share some exciting announcements. The event is free and open to the public.
