Can you swim in the Shark Tank?

Shark Tank is a new reality show where entrepreneurs must try to convince five multi-millionaire business tycoons to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they need to jumpstart their businesses.

Each week, ambitious entrepreneurs from across the country will present their breakthrough business concepts, products, properties and services to the panel of the ruthless Shark Tank investors. Their goal is to convince these merciless moguls to invest their own dollars in the concept.

Shark Tank premiere to prove captivating

As you’ll see in the Shark Tank premiere, convincing real-life millionaires to part with their own money is no easy task. When the idea is poor, the Sharks will tear into the ill-prepared presenters and pass on the idea with a simple, “I’m out!,” sending them running for the exit. Entrepreneurs will be asked to give up a percentage of their companies’ equity to the Sharks in order to get the investment they need.shark-tank8

  1. Just a note to all regarding the upcoming show “Shark Tank”. I hope everyone realizes that this show is not a new idea, and most certainly not a Mark Burnett Idea. Here in Canada we have had a show running for a couple of years already called “The Dragons Den”. It seems to me That once again American Television Studios have run out of good Ideas and have to steal shows from other countries and pass them off as their own.

    Perhaps Mr. Burnett should quit while he is ahead.

  2. Yes I think most people are aware, but CBC bought the rights for Dragon’s Den from Sony which originally aired the show Money Tiger.

    If “SHARKTANK” is a sucess in Los Angeles, will there be another “casting”in the the near future, or will sharktank, appear in anohter American City?

    Gah!!! I can’t believe that Sharktank is stealing Kevin and Robert from us for this show!!!! They were the “Simon Cowell” of our Dragon’s Den!!! I hope our replacements for them are just as “hungry”… of course I’ll still watch our Dragon’s Den AND this one, but it was bad enough we lost Dragon Laurence Lewin, the founder of La Senza when he died, but to lose both Kevin and Robert…. grrr…. though Brett is an awesome replacement, hopefully we hit it big again with their replacements..

    Oh well, all in all, us Cannucks are lucky, we get to watch BOTH shows… another season doubled of amazing inventions and a LOT of hilarious bad inventions.

    cheers all.
