Lauren Lake goes from the courtroom to the conference room, serving as judge on Queen Boss, which airs on BET/Centric.

Women entrepreneurs pitch their products and compete for an opportunity to win the ultimate grand prize and be crowned “Queen Boss.” 

“I feel blessed to have this chance to empower other women in business and share legal insights and lessons I’ve learned on my own professional journey.” says Lauren Lake.

Over 500,000 new businesses start up each month in the United States, and African-American women represent the fasting-growing group of entrepreneurs. But how do these women know if they have a great concept for a business, and if they have the skills to be a C.E.O.? CENTRIC answers this question in its first business competition-reality series “Queen Boss.”

Hosted by television personality and business woman Tracey Edmonds, “Queen Boss” is an 8-episode series that strives to find the best and brightest African-American female entrepreneurs and have them compete for the business opportunity of a lifetime.

Each week, 3 new female entrepreneurs will step into the “Queen Boss Conference Room” where they’ll pitch their products to a panel of esteemed celebrity judges including Vanessa Simmons, Lauren Lake, Kandi Burruss, Carla Hall, Mikki Taylor, Lisa Price, Rakia Reynolds, Angela Benton and Robin Wilson. The entrepreneurs are all impressive women, but the judges put them to the test to see who has the Product, Passion, and Potential to win the competition.
