ALL NEW SHARK TANK - FRIDAY, MARCH 6 AT 9 PM ON ABC!
From The Shark Tank Blog
Steve Sashen never got a deal in the Shark Tank for Xeroshoes, his barefoot running sandals, but that was before he created the new Amuri Z-Tek sandal. The Sharks might have liked them a bit better. Steve sent me the original version of Xeroshoes a few years ago. I laced up the huarache style sandals […]
I recently spoke with Rick Hinnant to get a Grace and Lace Update. Rick is one half of the Grace and Lace brain trust; his wife, Melissa, was busy doing a photo shoot the day we spoke. The Hinnants struck a tender chord with Shark Tank Nation back in episode 511 in season five when […]
Sharon Yu sent me some products to do a Magic Cook review. She did a deal with Daymond, who invested $100K for 33% of Magic Cook in episode 612 in season six. Magic Cook consists of a plastic vessel with a stainless steel insert. You put the food you want to cook in the insert, […]
It’s always hard to watch Ben and Liz from Sseko Sandals, passionate and smart entrepreneurs, leave the Tank without an offer. It’s especially hard when entrepreneurs with a charitable mission leave empty handed. Their heart is in the right place, but the investment isn’t profitable for the Sharks.

The Internet was glowing in January with articles about the LUMIO pitch – beautiful product, elegant branding, logical growth plan, and a driven entrepreneur, Max Gunawan.

Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta pitch LuminAID, an inflatable solar light they developed to be able to provide a simple lighting solution to people in crisis due to natural disasters. They witnessed the devastation of the Haitian earthquakes in 2010 and when they were caught in an earthquake in Japan a year later, they realized […]
Christopher Gray got his scholarships the old fashioned way – without a scholarship app. He did manage to amass over $1.6 million in scholarship monies to attend Drexel University and he needed every penny of it; he wasn’t born into money. What he learned while getting all that cash for college was that there are […]
Jack Dufour and Alley Heffren are two young, adventurous college-aged kids who practically have their back packs surgically attached to their bodies! They like to travel, and need a good back pack while visiting the many places they go to. College kids in general are big into back packs, whether it’s for lugging books around […]
Ryan Fant got inspired to invent the Keen Home “smart vent” because he didn’t like warm air blowing in his face when he was trying to fall asleep in his college apartment. He thought if he had some sort of smart phone control, he could close the vent right above his bed; he couldn’t reach it […]
