Bellevue, Wash. — Dec. 1, 2016 — T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and entrepreneurship guru Marcus Lemonis, host of CNBC’s “The Profit,” today announced a new, multi-year collaboration to share insights that will help businesses succeed. T-Mobile and Lemonis will produce events across the country focused on coaching entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and launch a new video series called “Whiteboard Wednesdays,” featuring Lemonis.
It all kicks off today at T-Mobile’s newest store on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile with Lemonis speaking to invited entrepreneurs about how to harness the power of social media. Beginning at 7:00 p.m. Central Time, the event will also be live-streamed on T-Mobile’s @Work Facebook page.

“As America’s Un-carrier, we know a thing or two about how to compete – and win – against much bigger competitors with deeper pockets, just like most entrepreneurs in America do every day,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “With Marcus’ expertise and insights, we’ll help our @Work customers punch above their weight even more than they already do.”
“My focus and passion is working with entrepreneurs to give them the tools to succeed,” said Marcus Lemonis. “And when I learned about T-Mobile’s Un-carrier philosophy and their customer-focused, transparent approach to working with businesses, it was so refreshingly different that I knew I wanted to be part of it.”
Since T-Mobile launched Un-carrier for Business in March 2015, the number of business customers choosing T-Mobile @Work has more than doubled. The focus on predictable, flat-rate pricing has been attractive to businesses of all sizes.
