Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the sofa, TEN’s reality show Shark Tank returns for a second season.
Each week, ordinary Australians will bring their bright ideas into the tank with the hope of catching the attention and financial backing of one or more of the “Sharks”.
Entrepreneurs Steve Baxter (internet pioneer), Janine Allis (Boost Juice), Andrew Banks (The Vento Group), Naomi Simson (RedBalloon) and newcomer Dr Glen Richards (Greencross Australia) will receive business pitches from the fantastic to the forgettable.
But the Sharks didn’t get to where they are by taking it easy. While they are sure to circle on the brilliant ideas, those pitches that are less than impressive will be torn to shreds.
What will become of Queensland inventor Richard Ploszaj when he enters the Shark Tank requesting a $5 million investment in his Troppo Bicycle?
