Over the past 11 weeks, 16 partnerships have been made between the five millionaire investors and everyday South Africans who were looking to start, grow or save their businesses. We’ve seen drama, laughs, awkward and heart-warming moments, and in this week’s final episode of Shark Tank South Africa, four more entrepreneurs will be given the opportunity to pitch their businesses to the pack of ever-hungry Sharks.
This Sunday, accountant Marnus Broodryk, business woman Dawn Nathan-Jones, tech guru Vinny Lingham, telecommunications expert Romeo Kumalo and marketing authority Gil Oved will encounter a pair of young entrepreneurs hoping that at least one Shark will put some lightning in their bottle. They will be followed in the tank by a business woman from KZN intending to wow the Sharks with her delicious, healthy treats, a plumber with a medical invention designed to change lives and a serial entrepreneur who has his fingers in many pies, including one particular sector that Shark Dawn is very familiar with.
Even though it’s the final episode of the series, the Sharks remain fierce, critical and to the point when they need to be. However, this episode will also see the five investors faced with one heart-wrenching pitch in particular that sees everyone’s emotions running high, so grab the tissues!
