Robert Herjavec

Robert HerjavecCanadian Shark, Robert Herjavec, immigrated from Croatia as a young child. A self-made millionaire, Herjavec lives an elite lifestyle, driving a collection of exotic cars, cruising on his own yacht, and owning luxury homes in Canada and Florida. He is the epitome of the Rags-to-Riches story.

Robert Herjavec solidified his success early on selling his first Start-up Company for over 100 Million dollars, after taking nine years to build, with plans to retire in his thirties. Retirement was short, he needed more challenge. He embarked on his second Start-up Company and sold it in sixteen short months for 230 million dollars.

Now, Herjavec has yet another Start-up Company, The Herjavec Group, a Software Security Company.

Herjavec’s celebrity status took off when he made his mark on Dragons Den, the Canadian model for Shark Tank. Herjavec has been a longtime investor on that show and appears in every Shark Tank show to date.

He is a published author, writing the book, “Driven, How to Succeed in Business and Life”. The book is available in Ebook form, on Amazon and iTunes.

Auto Racing is only fitting, with Herjavec’s love of exotic automobiles. He is an owner/driver in the Ferrari Challenge Car Series. He created a considerable amount of attention when the “Rookie of the Year” champion crashed his Ferrari Race Car.

  1. Love the show. Mr. Wonderful could use an infusion of Anti-Asshole medication. If you’d like, gimme a buzz and I’ll do the infusing myself.


  2. I just watched the Shark Tank episode where you and Mark Cuban partnered with the Investioners for their Smart wheel. There was an issue that these young and intelligent students couldn’t realize: who their customers were. This invention would benefit every high school who provides their students instructional driver’s education training and also independent driving schools. Simple?

    Robert, you need to make more deals man. I don’t ever see you capitalizing on these business opportunities. You guys need to be more fair as well- you are a big baby when someone makes a counter offer and you’re like “I’m out.” Are you serious? What would you do if you were making a big business deal in your real life and a huge potential partner (you’re trying to close) throws you an objection… what are you just gonna break down and quit. Woosy! You need to give these people a chance and not pull your opportunity if they wanna think about it or hear other offers. Stop being so Da** selfish and play the game more fairly, give these people more of a chance too.

  4. I agree with Matt. Robert, you say “I’m ouwt” way too much. I can tell you aren’t going to make a deal with anyone before the show even starts. I say you either start making more deals or give up your seat so that Laurie and Barbara can be on at the same time. At least then, these entrepreneurs can get a better chance of not having their dreams crushed.

    To Robert Herjavec
    My step son has 3 Masters degrees one each on tourism from Russia and Italy and another on finance from Toledo Ohio ( GPA 3.84 ) in looking at him he is working a part time as an account. I would like to protect his work in programming he has the knack for doing what others only think of . So now is the question how dose he (with my help) get a patent on his work the last one someone will check in on a
    computer check out for lunch and at the end of the wk have a total hr with his/her wages ready to be printed and the booking keeping all ready to go. Another one did the booking in job costing accounting.

    This has nothing to do with the above he speaks 4 languages English, French, Italy, and his native Russian. He is married and has his green card.
