Episode 503 – Season 5

shark tank season five episode 503Episode 503 originally airs Friday, October 4, 2013 and Lori and Barbara are together once again on the panel! Will they continue to battle or will they team up on a deal tonight?

4 new entrepreneurs enter the Shark Tank tonight to fund their new or expanding businesses. The over the top big winner tonight should be UC Davis Grad Chris Johnson and his Rapid Ramen. Chris invented a product that cooks Ramen Noodles in the microwave in half the time. Debbie Glickman brings her line of aromatherapy sprays to help kids conquer common fears and anxieties. Can you say “monster repellent?” My Freeloader is a self-described “Lightweight, Minimalist Child Carrier Backpack” that lets the two dads who invented it quickly stow their kids on their backs while off on “quasi-adventures.” The Kookn Kap girls reveal their new style chef hat that keeps cooking fumes out of hair and hair out of food.

Episode 503 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 503 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.

  1. Rapid Ramen is the winner, because I believe that his product will hit the international market and make a killing with your help.
