According to Shark Tank’s casting coordinator, casting for the upcoming fourth season of the show is complete. Thank you to the many thousands of you who applied. Many of you posted comments on InTheSharkTank and tweeted to us, and it’s always exciting to be rooting for you all. Around 30,000 people applied to appear and only 80-90 pitches will make it onto the show, so if you weren’t picked this time around, consider applying for Season 5.
The way I look at it is that if your business wasn’t selected, that gives you nearly a year to grow your business, improve your pitch, and potentially ask for a larger investment from the Sharks if you have the sales or assets to back it up.
The next time you’re applying via e-mail or standing in front of a producer at an open call, be sure you’ve read some of our business tips on valuation, lessons from the show and how to pitch in under a minute.
