Episode 527 is the Shark Tank season 5 finale – that means no more NEW Shark Tank Episodes until season 6. The season closes the same way it opened: with Lori and Barbara on the panel. For the last time in season five, four new entrepreneurs enter the Shark Tank seeking an investment and a strategic partner, in the form of a Shark.
Wayne Sikorcin and Scott Smith hope the Sharks like Tie-Not, their super easy tool for tying water balloons; will they make a splash and get a deal? Emily and Matt Griffin hope to cook up a deal with Baker's Edge, an innovative line of specialty baking pans that “revolutionized” brownie baking and “made lasagna easier;” now they have a cupcake pan. Dr. Sylvie Shapiro and Nicole Brooks pitch Foot Fairy, a new app that measures shoe sizes on an iPad; will their business measure up to Shark standards? Finally, Kaeya Majmundar introduces the Sharks to BZ Box, her patented storage solution that saves both time and space; can she put a good package deal together?
Which businesses will the Sharks invest in to close out season 5? Tune in to ABC on May 16 to find out!

Episode 527 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 527 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.
