Episode 813 is the first new Shark Tank to air in 2017. Four new businesses hope to start the year with a deal as they pitch their businesses to the panel of investors/Sharks. Laura and Michael Dweck want to get down to the basics when they pitch Basic Outfitter, their online, men's sock and underwear company. Jason and Angelica Sweeting introduce the Sharks to Naturally perfect Dolls, their line of dolls that celebrate the natural beauty of girls of color. Tara and Jason O’Mara bring cats to the Shark Tank when they show off SHRU, an “intelligent cat companion,” the flagship product of their PDX Pet Designs business. Former Navy Seal Cade Courtley hopes to brew up a deal for Victory Coffees, his military-branded line of organic, gourmet coffees sold via a subscription model.
Which business lands a shark tonight?
Back in season six, Robert invested $110K for 10% of Drain Strain, a sink drain stopper that won't clog. Since then, the product got on the shelves at Home Depot. Tonight we'll see what else happened with this business.
There are 28 Shark Tank Episodes for Season 8. This season features more appearances by Chris Sacca and a host of other surprises. Casting is currently closed, but it never hurts to get a head start on season nine! If you would like to appear on the show, check out our Auditions and Casting information.
Episode 813 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 813 entrepreneurs will make their best pitch to the panel of five Shark investors who will use their own money if they choose to invest. The Shark Investors negotiate on the spot without any previous information, which differs from typical negotiations between venture capital investors and entrepreneurial start-ups.
Companies pitching the Shark Investors must go through a rigorous due diligence process before an on-air deal is completed. Shark Tank Blog follow ups help you keep track of the companies that end up successful and the ones that don't complete their deal.
