Shark Tank Season 12 Episode 9: The Pizza Cupcake, Jax Sheets & More

episode 1209Mark, Lori, Daymond, Kevin and Robert are on the panel for Shark Tank episode 1209. They’ll evaluate four businesses seeking to get a boost from a Shark’s cash and business mentorship.

Husband and wife team Andrea Meggiato and Michelle Jiminez-Meggiato give the Sharks a taste of The Pizza Cupcake, their mini pizzas that took New York by storm. Professional surfer Nic Lamb wants the Sharks to chill with IceBeanie, his headwear that uses cold compression to cure migraines. Wen Muenyi wants a partner for his Jax Sheets for Men, silk-like sheets made from bamboo fiber and silver. Patrick Parizo and Armand Ferranti want a Shark to “go topless” and invest in Draft Top, a tool that removes the top of aluminum cans and turns them into drinking “glasses.” Which company gets a deal tonight?

In season 11, Barbara offered David Sodemann and Brett Ellenson $300,000 (half of which was a loan) for 10% of Boho, their custom camper van business. Unfortunately, their episode aired on March 20, 2020 – the date most of the USA went into months long pandemic related lockdowns. Tonight we’ll see how this business fared since then.

Episode 1209 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 1209 entrepreneurs will make their best pitch to the panel of five Shark investors who will use their own money if they choose to invest. The Shark Investors negotiate on the spot without any previous information, which differs from typical negotiations between venture capital investors and entrepreneurial start-ups.

Companies pitching the Shark Investors must go through a rigorous due diligence process before an on-air deal is completed. Shark Tank Blog follow ups help you keep track of the companies that end up successful and the ones that don’t complete their deal.
