Shark Tank – Reality TV

Shark Tank may be the best show ever for Entrepreneurs. Each week close to 8 million viewers tune in and get excited about each Entrepreneur asking for The Sharks‘ help. The show is very social and interactive: Twitter goes crazy as The Sharks tweet live during the show. Fans are able to have conversations and get more information from investors, entrepreneurs and the Sharks themselves.Each episode has five investors who hear funding requests for companies ranging from pure start-ups to multimillion dollar businesses. If the Sharks like the business, they’ll negotiate with the entrepreneurs. It can get heated in the Shark Tank since the Sharks are investing their own money.
Shark Tank - Barbara, Lori, Daymond, Kevin, Robert and Mark
The deals made on Shark Tank do not finalize until The Sharks perform due diligence on both the company and the entrepreneur. Investments agreed to on the show often die during the vetting process for a variety of reasons, despite having an on-show agreement.

Entrepreneurs’ Roller-Coaster

Entrepreneurs go through an emotional roller-coaster ride. There is a regimented casting process with tens of thousands of applicants.

More businesses tape a show segment than are eventually shown. The producers select the most entertaining presentations and then notify each one a few weeks before their episode airs.

The best preparation for an appearance on Shark Tank is setting up as many pitches to Venture Capital and Angel Investment groups before facing the The Sharks. Some entrepreneurs will simulate the rapid barrage of questions by having friends and family simulate the Reality TV Show  experience. Study as many past pitches as possible and record your own pitch, so you are able to study your own presentation and adjust it as necessary.

The Sharks – Celebrity Investors

Shark Tank investors include Billionaire Mark Cuban; Fashion Icon Daymond John; Investment Expert and previously aspiring Photographer, Kevin O’Leary; Real Estate Mogul Barbara Corcoran; QVC Queen and Inventor, Lori Greiner; and Software Mogul and Ferrari Challenge Team owner, Robert Herjavec. Info-Commercial Pioneer Kevin Harrington and Comedian Jeff Foxworthy are previous Celebrity Investors.

  2. how in the h am i supposed to b able to order what i just saw on st if i cant find it

    im looking for the sugar scrub products pls let me know

  3. There was a presentation some time ago about an item you place between your cars seat and the console. The purpose is to prevent dropping things down into that narrow opening due the challenge it poses in retrieving them. Does anybody know what they were called or anything about them? I really could use this item in my truck. Thank-you for your time!!!!

  4. I have an invention. I’m trying to find the website to apply for Shark Tank. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to start the process?

  5. Bryan Murphy says

    I just want everyone to know that has anything to do with this show shark Tank’s that there was a time I had great respect for each and everyone of them. Now that time is past and the show has become popular almost each and everyone of these people the cast of the show are absolute rude and classless at best. It’s one thing to be one thing to toot your own horn horn all the time but is quite another thing to use your own success to try to talk down to others and destroy their very being in their ability to strive for a better life. I think you all should be very ashamed for being such arrogant shallow people which I am sure you will all laugh about and say oh wow how could I be ashamed how could I feel bad about myself because all of you like to tell everyone how rich you are and how successful you are and that’s only through your own insecurity and you all stand incorrect. I no longer want to watch the show because you all make me sick. In fact, I think the reason you try to bring everyone else down and not put any money towards their dreams into starting their companies which in a lot of cases have been fantastic ideas. I think the reason you do this and be a little everyone is due to the fact you really do not have the money you claim to have and you simply can’t come up with a better excuse why you can’t come up with the money to invest in their companies other then to degrade them and try to embarrass them and humiliate them and try to ruin their future endeavors. Disrespectfully, Brian

  6. Does Lori have more than five dresses? It seems every time I see her she’s in the same dresses maybe she should try yellow sundress I think it would soften her appearance to match her personality

  7. chris silva says

  8. chris silva says

    like some of the people that go on the show have good ideas and tha sharks have lots of money and they earned it because they were smart and they worked hard for what they have but on the other hand a few hundred thousand dollars or less is not to much for them to help people with there dreams that would never be able to get it any where else except for a chance to be on the shark tank and it must be very hard to be in front of 5 sharks hoping one of them is able to see your vision,After all it is the american dream to be wealthy and happy and be noticed and at least these people had the balls to go on the show and it shows that they want something better for them self and there trying and everybody deserves a chance because you never know when another person will change the world for the better

  9. The background music while presenters are presenting their ideas is very distracting and too loud. I know it is supposed to add to the suspense of the presentation but it is too annoying. Could you please turn it down or off ? thank you

  10. I think it’s wrong for Kevin to tell to tell people there cockroaches an he has a crappy weather.

  11. i have to agree with ruth, who mentioned that she finds the music annoying. why do we need musical accompaniment on a program about entrepreneurship? i enjoy the educational aspect of SHARK TANK, but how can i hear with the overlay of noise? a poorly done dramatic soundtrack, played loudly does not enhance the show nor does the viewer need to be told how to feel. during commercial breaks, the drug companies seem to be using the same musical strategy as they try to lessen the sting of drugs potential side effects! it’s an old trick and it’s not working! i’m out!

  12. Danny Arnold says

    I have a Putter that I have invented that Has been approved by the USGA. There is no Putter that has ever been made like this Putter. I t is the only Putter that adjusts to any Golfers stance or lie. I am loking for someone to buy this invention. Would you know anyone that might be interested?
