Episode 823

episode 823Chris Sacca makes yet another guest appearance in Shark Tank episode 823. Four new businesses will vie for an investment from him or one of the other Sharks. It’s a tech-heavy episode featuring three apps. Savannah Cowley and Samuel Agboola show off Flag, their app that prints free photos for users; the catch is the photos have ads on the back. Joseph Parisi and Nick Nevarez pitch Guard Llama, a personal security device that instantly alerts police with your description and location whenever it’s activated. Ian Lyman, Tov Arneson, and Alex Wilhelm seek validation (and cash) for Validated, their app that lets retailers and merchants validate transportation expenses like they validate parking. Brian Riley and Kyle Jansen hope they get an investment for Guardian Bikes, their company that builds safe childrens’ bikes with a proprietary braking system.

Who will the Sharks invest in tonight?

Episode 823 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 823 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.
