Episode 1501 – Season 15 Premier

episode 1501Episode 1501 is the season premier of Shark Tank season 15! Guest Shark Candace Nelson joins Mark, Kevin, Lori and Daymond in evaluating four new businesses and deciding if they’re investment worthy. Will any Sharks invest tonight?

Kevin Klein and Josh Green give the Sharks a taste of Pie Wine, their gently carbonated wines that they claim are the perfect wine to enjoy with pizza. Brothers Ryan and Doug Bouton hope the Sharks bite on Gatsby Chocolate, their plant based chocolate bars and peanut butter cups that have half the calories of “regular” chocolates. Paige Brattin seeks a Shark investor for Worthy Brands, her eye and chemotherapy port patches that feature fun designs and and skin sensitivity friendly materials. Will the Sharks bite on any of these businesses?

Tonight’s Update segment will feature a look at guest Shark Candace Nelson’s entrepreneurial background.

Episode 1501 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 1501 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.
