It’s that time of year again. Snow is falling, bells are ringing and holiday-themed businesses are pitching to the Sharks. Yes, this past Friday we were gifted with the yearly Holiday Special of Shark Tank. Now, I must confess, I’m a bit of a Grinch when it comes to this themed episode. It’s not that I’m against the holidays in general. I love spending time with family and I’m usually okay with snow up until mid-January. I just find that the Shark Tank Holiday Special tends to include weaker pitches/businesses than the rest of the season. Occasionally we get a stellar pitch (like the ugly sweater company Tipsy Elves) but more often than not the pitches are weak seasonal businesses that have no business taking on venture capital.
I’ll try and keep an open mind this year! Let’s see what pitches Santa has brought with him in his sleigh:
