ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ is by no means just a business entertainment show. It is a big opportunity for the thousands who line up to participate in the show, year after year. There are two reasons for it. The first one is that, if the sharks really like your business, one can bag a major deal with them. The second is that, even if you don’t, it’s still good publicity for your business. The practical side apart, the show has also entertained its viewers for several years now, and some of the entrepreneurs and businesses that have come on the show have stayed with us for several reasons.
