Episode 611

sharks episode 611Episode 611 is the first new Shark Tank for 2015. The New year brings new entrepreneurs into the Shark Tank seeking investments from the panel of wealthy sharks. Husband and wife team Nick and Elyse Oleksak left their high-powered Wall Street careers to “re-invent the bagel” by creating Bantam Bagels, bite-sized, stuffed, mini bagel balls that made Oprah’s “favorite things” list for 2014. Will the Sharks take a bite out of this epicurean delight? Aram, Da Woon, and Soo Kang, sisters and tech entrepreneurs, pitch Coffee Meets Bagel – an oddly named dating app that introduces singles to friends of friends. Former technical director at Pixar Studios Zander Adell pitches Doorman, a service that accepts package deliveries and delivers them to you at your convenience.  Former Vice President of Marketing for Newsweek, Julie Kalimian, introduces the Sharks to Skinny Shirt – fashionable women’s shirts that have a slimming effect.

Which businesses get a deal and which are Shark bait?

The Sharks


Hamboards, the little company that makes really big skateboards, got a deal with Robert in episode 507 of season 5. Robert invested $300K for 30% of the business. Sales blew up in the immediate aftermath of the show, but episode 611 gives us a look at what’s happened since then.

There are 28 Shark Tank Episodes for Season 6. This season features two new Sharks and a host of other surprises. Casting is currently closed, but it never hurts to get a head start on season seven! If you would like to appear on the show, check out our Auditions and Casting information.

Episode 611 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 611 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.
