Simon Cowell has made a fortune by shattering the dreams of countless talentless musicians, and his next big project is going to be a sort of an X Factor of the tech world. Cowell will be teaming up with will.i.am to look for the next Mark Zuckerberg.
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 Will.i.am 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 Will.i.am 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.”
