Four new businesses seek mentorship and cash from one of the wealthy panelists. Registered Nurse and board certified lactation consultant introduces the Boobie Bar, a snack bar full of a proprietary herbal blend to help breastfeeding moms produce more milk. Eugenia Chen hopes Sharks share her love of pandas when she pitches Pandaloon, her panda-themed dog costume and apparel business. Alice Lovell Rossiter wants to arrange a partnership with a Shark for Alice's Table, her business opportunity for hosting flower arranging events and parties.

Do the Sharks bite on any of these businesses?
Tonight's update segment features Aqua Vault, a season six business Daymond invested $75,000 in for 25% equity. In a Beyond the Tank segment, Aqua Vault founders Avin Samtani, Rob Peck, and Jonathan Kinas were growing rapidly and taking big orders from waterparks. They had minor production issues at the time, but Daymond felt they could work through it. Tonight, we'll see how far they've come.

Episode 911 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 911 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.
