Comcast NBCUniversal provides content, products and services designed to help businesses succeed. Comcast Business offers advanced communication solutions to help companies of all sizes be more productive. Building on the company’s entrepreneurial heritage, this event will leverage local expertise in an effort to share opportunities that help grow the small business economy.

“Technology is rapidly becoming a key factor in the success of every business—whether it’s a locally owned shop, a national chain or an emerging startup – and that starts with a fast, reliable and secure internet connection” said Paul Savas, vice president of Comcast Business for Comcast’s Western New England Region, which is headquartered in Connecticut.  “As a provider to businesses of all sizes, Comcast Business is helping to shape how businesses advance, grow and innovate, and programs like this are a natural fit for us to reinforce that message.”

About The Profit
“The Profit” follows serial entrepreneur and investor Marcus Lemonis, who puts his own money on the line to help save and grow struggling small businesses across the country.  Since “The Profit” first premiered, Lemonis has invested more than $50 million of his own money in the companies featured on the series.

When Marcus Lemonis isn’t running his multi-billion dollar company, Camping World, he goes on the hunt for struggling businesses that are desperate for cash and ripe for a deal.  In each episode, Lemonis makes an offer that’s impossible to refuse; his cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits.  And once inside these companies, he’ll do almost anything to save the business and make himself a profit; even if it means firing the president, promoting the secretary or doing the work himself. 

CNBC’s “The Profit” returns with all-new episodes beginning Tuesday, June 6 at 10PM ET/PT.
