Shark Tank Season 13 Story
Shark Tank is a unique reality show that portrays the business deals between an entrepreneur and a tycoon. The show features a panel of investors (who are referred to as ‘sharks’ here) who judge the entrepreneurs who come to the show to present their company or business ideas in order to cut a deal with one of the sharks and receive financial strength from them.
The sharks make a thorough evaluation of the entrepreneur’s company, idea, or business model before they reach a judgment. The panel is mixed with different types of sharks, each with distinct tastes and interests. Some try their best to reject an entrepreneur kindly and softly while some just reject them on their face without holding back. Shark Robert Herjavec is worthy of mentioning for his sweet way to deal with entrepreneurs while on the other hand Kevin O’Leary is famous for his impatience.
Even though the shark gets paid by the production company, it’s their own money they invest in the business deals they make with the entrepreneurs of the show, that makes them more careful and perform intense scrutiny of the entrepreneur, their potential, and their business endeavor whichever includes questions about deals and sometimes about the entrepreneurs as people. Most of the contestants try to cut a deal with one of the sharks.
And if any panel member gets interested they get to make a “handshake deal” with them on the show, but if none of the sharks gets intrigued, the entrepreneur has to leave empty-handed. However, a handshake deal is not the end. Reports say that about 20% of the handshake deal made on the show doesn’t work out either due to the due diligence process which includes product testing etc. or due to withdrawal by the entrepreneur. It is also said that some entrepreneurs just come to the show just take advantage of the “Shark Tank Effect”, which means the publicity they get even just by appearing on air.
