Entrepreneurs can grab a ticket to the event here, Mark Cuban is a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native who skipped his senior year in high school to enroll at the University of Pittsburgh. Cuban later transferred to Indiana University because it had the cheapest tuition of all the schools in the top ten of business. After graduation, Cuban left for Dallas, Texas where he began working with Your Business Software, one of the first PC software retailers in Dallas. After being fired Cuban started his own business called MicroSolutions which was sold to CompuServe for six million dollars. Afterwards, Cuban, teamed with another Indiana University alum, started Audionet. Audionet was sold in 1999 for 5.7 billion in Yahoo! stock. Cuban has since entered into many startups giving them name recognition and helping many of them reach new heights. In January of 2000 Cuban bought a majority stake in the Dallas Mavericks for 285 million dollars and has owned the team ever since. In the 20 years before his purchase of the team, the team only won forty percent of their games and since have won 69 percent of their games. In 2011, the Mavericks reached the NBA Finals for the second time under Cuban but this time beat the same team that defeated them in their last appearance winning the NBA title. Since his ownership, Cuban has shown much love for the game and his Mavericks which can be seen in the amount of fines the NBA has slapped on him due to his criticizing of referees.
