Life in a fishbowl for entrepreneur Matt

AN entrepreneur from Times Territory is preparing to star in a new online reality show about starting up his own business.

Matt Stockman, 27, runs Sharabang Music, an online record label and band management business which specialises in breaking new indie acts into the music scene.

His business is one of three that will be filmed during different stages of development, and then broadcast on website Business in a Fishbowl, which pitches itself as a “Big Brother for the business world”.

Matt, who grew up in New Road, Digswell, but now lives in Nottingham, will be joined in the “fishbowl” by a Mexican food retailer and an online bespoke tailor.

Over time each business will receive advice from celebrity entrepreneurs, business experts and members of the public.
