ABC’s “Shark Tank” Seeks Haas Students and Alumni, Feb. 26

Tempted to take a dive into the Shark Tank? Do you have a lucrative business or product that needs financial backing? Have you ever wondered how to become a show contestant and get funding for your startup?

Berkeley-Haas students and alumni are invited to meet with the producers from the popular ABC show, Shark Tank, where entrepreneurs pitch the investor “sharks” in hopes of trading a percentage of their business for investment funding. Not everyone walks away with funding, but it’s the contestants’ job to show the sharks why investing in their company is a smart, profitable move. The producers are coming to Haas Wednesday, Feb. 26, to help entrepreneurs with the application process and answer questions about the upcoming season.

The Shark Tank producers are looking for entrepreneurs with a great product or business idea who need an investment to move forward. Here are the details:
