Kumar Arora
A serial entrepreneur and investor with many notable brands including  ILTHY®, Rogue Eyewear and more. Lebron James caught the attention of Kumar's ventures and was one of the hand-picked investors on his CNBC investment reality show "Cleveland Hustles". On the show, Kumar invested $200,000 towards another new business: Old City Soda to expand manufacturing, open up their very own brick-and-mortar concept, as well as expand into national distribution. This catapulted Kumar into the world of entertainment and makes him the youngest investor on CNBC as well as the first Indian-American on television as an investor.
