Shark Tank Season 7 Episode 4: Windcatcher, Rent Like a Champion & More

episode 704Guest Shark Chris Sacca, billionaire Silicon Valley venture capitalist, joins the panel in Shark Tank episode 704. As an early investor in Kickstarter, Sacca will be pleased that 3 of the 4 businesses presenting used the crowdfunding platform in the early stages of their businesses.

Drew Mitchell and Mike Doyle pitch Rent Like a Champion, the AirBnB for college football fans, seeking an investment to expand their growing national, niche housing business. Rent Like a Champion is the only business in episode 704 that didn’t do a Kickstarter campaign. Danny Grossfeld hopes to get a shot in the arm for HotShot, his ready to drink hot coffee in an aluminum can business. Grossfeld had an unsuccessful Kickstarter bid back in the spring of 2015. Ryan Frayne hopes to inflate the value of his business, Windcatcher – a special valve that can effortlessly inflate everything from air mattresses to bouncy houses. Frayne raised $149,405 on Kickstarter back in 2013. Sisters and educators Lavanya and Melissa Jawaharlal are looking to the Sharks to help them grow Stem Center USA, their after school education program that teaches science, technology, engineering, and math with a true hands-on approach. The young women raised over $100K in 2014 on Kickstarter to fund their educational robotics kit called the PI Robot.

Which businesses will leave the Tank with a new partner and an infusion of cash?

The Sharks


Lydia Evans told Daymond she liked “long romantic walks to the bank” back in season 6. Even though the Sharks liked Lydia and her product, they thought it was too early to invest in her business. Despite leaving the Tank without a deal, Lydia went on to do over 6 times her previous sales. Her success earned her an update segment where we’ll learn more about her progress.

There are 28 Shark Tank Episodes for Season 7. 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 eight! If you would like to appear on the show, check out our Auditions and Casting information.

Episode 704 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 704 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.
