Mark Cuban will be joining the TechCrunch50 program on Tuesday, September 9 for a one-on-one interview with Jason Calacanis from the main stage. You probably know Mark as both the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and a serial entrepreneur who co-founded Broadcast.com with Todd Wagner. They then sold Broadcast.com to Yahoo in July of 1999 for $5.04 billion. Before Broadcast.com, Mark co-founded MicroSolutions, a leading National Systems Integrator, in 1983, and later sold it to CompuServe.
Mark has continued his work with Todd Wagner in another venture, 2929 Entertainment, which provides vertically integrated production and distribution of films and video. Additionally, Mark is a co-founder (with Philip Garvin) of HDNet, the first high-definition satellite television network.
Even with all of his entrepreneurial, sports and corporate experience, Mark recently found time to participate as one of the 12 contestants on the 5th season of the ABC Show Dancing with the Stars. Mark and his partner, Kym Johnson, were the fifth couple to be voted off of the show after welterweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and professional partner Karina Smirnoff.
