Get Kwesé TV and tune in to see which entrepreneur will be brave enough to swim in the Shark Tank as they pitch their ideas to these formidable entrepreneurs.

Season four of Shark Tank promises to give entrepreneurs from all walks of life a chance to chase the American dream and secure business deals that could ultimately make them millionaires. Aspiring entrepreneurs are given an hour to pitch their ideas to the panel (viewers only get to see an edited 10-minute pitch), after which the Sharks will decide whether to invest in the idea or swim away.

The interesting element of the show is that if more than one tycoon is willing to invest in the contestant's idea, they can play one tycoon off another to get the best deal. However, if no Shark wants to bite into their scheme, it could just prove the end of their entrepreneurial dream.  

Meet the panel of Sharks to decide if you would be brave enough to swim with them:

  • Mark Cuban: the owner of NBA's Dallas Mavericks, he also co-owns 2929 Entertainment and is the chairman of AXS TV. Cuban is also a philanthropist, investor, author, television personality and a businessman. He joined Shark Tank in Season three and has invested in more than eighty deals worth more than $19 million dollars in total.
  • Daymond John: the founder, president and CEO of FUBU. He is also an American businessman, investor, author and motivational speaker. He is one of the top investors for Shark Tank, having invested more than $7 million dollars.
  • Barbara Corcoran: American businesswoman, speaker, investor and television personality- these are just a few hats she wears in the corporate sector. From a young age she wanted to be her own boss and in 1973 she went on to co-found a real estate business, The Corcoran Group. On Shark Tank she has invested in more than twenty businesses.
  • Kevin Harrington: an American entrepreneur and business executive who founded As Seen On TV. He has also appeared on the American Annual invention trade show Inpex, as the Keynote Speaker. Harrington happens to also be one of the original investors and panel members of Shark Tank.

  • Guest judge Chris Sacca: a venture investor, company advisor, entrepreneur and former lawyer. He is also a proprietor of Lowercase Capital, a venture capital fund in the United States, which invested in the early technology stages of companies like Twitter, Uber, Instagram, Twilio and Kickstarter.

With the accumulative experience of these business predators, you can be guaranteed that at least one of them can sniff out a winning business plan. Catch these Sharks on Shark Tank to see how they work their magic and turn entrepreneurial dreams into reality.
