Lori and Barbara are together once again in Shark Tank episode 514 on January 17. Four new entrepreneurs pitch the wealthy investors, hoping to fund their business dreams and get a partnership with a Shark. Lauren Padawer introduces the Sharks to her business, the Alaska Glacial Mud Company, a line of skin care products with all natural ingredients based on hand harvested, glacial mud from the Copper River Delta in Alaska. Michael Barzman and Bryan O'Connell, co-founders of InvisiPlug, pitch their line of wooden power strips that give style conscious consumers a more decorative option. Also appearing is Ben Alexander, an entrepreneur who thinks his Balloon Distractions business is a Shark Tank shoe-in. Greg Cronin pitches LockerBones, a locker organizer he made to help his daughter keep things neat and tidy at school.

Episode 514 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 514 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.
