Welcome back to our Shark Tank Recap Blog! This week in the Tank we get four entrepreneurs that span a variety of industries (and generations). Shark-wise we have Mark, Barbara, Kevin, Lori and guest Shark Chris Sacca. Let me start off by saying I love Chris Sacca. Ever since hearing him on the first season of the Startup Podcast, I’ve followed him as much as possible. And when he jumped into the Tank for the first time, he instantly became my favourite Shark! He brings a different energy than the other Sharks, partly due to his age (he’s only 41) and partly due to the aggressive investment style that helped him achieve his estimated $1.2 billion net worth. Plus, he’s an early backer of huge tech giants like Twitter and Uber, so he knows his stuff!
The promos for this episode hyped up a feisty showdown between Chris and Mark (we’ll get there) but first let’s dive into the opening pitch!
Pitch #1: Melanie Disbrow – Milk Snob
