This will give people a bit more time to settle in to watch their favorite venture capital game show and give ABC some exposure for new sitcoms. Shark Tank initially scheduled 22 episodes for season four, ABC bought 4 additional episodes over the course of the season, bringing the total to 26. The Shark Tank/ABC website is still looking for entrepreneurs, so if you would like to appear on the show, check out our Auditions and Casting information.

Episode 421 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 421 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.
