Entrepreneur Deborah Torres turned heads when she turned down an eye-popping $1 million offer in 2019 from billionaire investor Marc Cuban and guest investor Rohan Oza on the ABC television show “Shark Tank.” Cuban and Oza wanted 100% of her vegan fried chicken start-up Atlas Monre. That wasn’t in the cards for Torres and her goal to deliver on healthy, plant-based alternatives to her family’s favorite foods.

Atlas Monroe has since gone on a business growth trajectory expanding nationwide and reaching over $2 million in sales. Radio Boston host Tiziana Dearing moderates a  conversation with Torres about her entrepreneurial journey and vegan food mission.
