Participants pitch their product or business to the team of ‘sharks’ that includes Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec. Shark, Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary. Each of these highly-successful individuals holds a certain level of respect for their incredible careers as entrepreneurs.

Participants get the opportunity to pitch their business and attempt to sell a share of their business to a shark for a sum of money, which is generally used to take a step forward. For some, that means securing enough capital to jumpstart a portion of their business. For others, it provides an opportunity to expand.

Regardless of the context, “Shark Tank” is an extraordinary experience that helps to jumpstart entrepreneurial careers for years to come.

The Shark Tank Casting team is currently seeking participants nationwide. They’re on a quest to “discover the next group of driven entrepreneurs, creators and innovators who can pitch their breakthrough business products and companies to the Sharks in hopes of landing investment funds.”

Casting for Season 13 of the show is being held virtually because of the pandemic. Applications are open until the end of June. Those interested in participating can click here for more information.
