Episode 1012 – Shark Tank Holiday Special

episode 1012Shark Tank: Episode 1012 is the 2018 Holiday Special. Usually around the holidays, holiday themed businesses make their way into the Tank and this year is no exception as four new businesses vie for some cash from the wealthy Sharks.

Former financier Samantha Stephens hopes the Sharks like OatMeals, her New York City oatmeal restaurant that turns oatmeal into gourmet food. Nick Palmero and Kyle Allen roll into the Tank with Ski-Z, an innovative ski caddy that makes it easier to carry your skis. Professional Santa Mitch Allen and several dozen other Santa Claus pros pitch Hire Santa, Allen’s professional Santa employment agency. Which business gets a deal tonight?

In the 2017 Holiday Special, Barbara invested $50,000 for 30% of The Original Comfy, a sweatshirt that’s also a blanket. When they first appeared, The Comfy hadn’t sold one unit. In tonight’s update segment, we’ll see how far they’ve come in just a year.

Episode 1012 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 1006 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.
