Forget American Idol, these contestants want to be the next American mogul. A hundred aspiring entrepreneurs made their pitches in Cleveland last week to a panel of successful business leaders. One, a distiller, was named the winner. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll hear from some contestants and organizers of the competition. Plus, we'll learn from a local investor what distinguishes an interesting idea from one worth putting money into. Join host Mike McIntyre Wednesday morning at 9.
