Who will have the best business bait, the right line and the smarts to win over a Shark? And who will be mauled in the Shark Tank?
Shark Tank, the critically-acclaimed, Emmy award-winning reality show has helped re-invigorate entrepreneurship in dozens of countries around the world.
The Australian version, hosted by Sarah Harris, features five of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs (“Sharks”). They include, Janine Allis (Boost Juice), Steve Baxter (internet pioneer), Andrew Banks (Talent2), John McGrath (McGrath Estate Agents) and Naomi Simson (RedBalloon).
All the Sharks are self-made multi-millionaires that will judge business concepts and products pitched by ordinary Australian. They will then decide whether to invest their own money to help market and mentor them.
Fifty thousand years ago, indigenous Australians blazed the trail for the inventors of today. Shark Tank celebrates the ingenuity and expertise of a brand new breed of innovators. In exchange for equity in their existing business, the aspiring entrepreneurs must convince a Shark their idea is worth pursuing … however they’ll soon learn it takes much more than passion to hook a Shark.
