A mixed bag for the Sharks to choose from
In this week’s episode of M-Net and Telkom’s Shark Tank SA, the five business mogul investors are faced with a diverse assortment of business ideas and the people behind them. Whilst the Sharks have made it clear in previous episodes that ideas alone are not investable, they may surprise some eager entrepreneurs this time around.
Squaring up against the hungry investors in the chilly waters of the tank on Sunday are an advertising executive with an “always pouring, never boring” attitude to gaming, a construction professional from Nelspruit with an organic invention to fuel the Sharks’ fire, an entrepreneur from East London looking to sell the Sharks on his “smashing” idea for the mining industry and a couple from Cape Town with grand designs to revolutionise the big, wide world of weddings.
As always, the pioneering business owners will have to keep their wits about them in the tank this week, as the Sharks drill deep into finances and figures, crunch down on some lofty projections and surprise us by demonstrating that every rule has its exception too!
