Shark Tank is an Australian adaptation of the American reality competition series of the same name for which in turn was based on the British reality competition series called Dragon's Den featuring aspiring entrepreneur-contestants make business presentations to a panel of "shark" investors.

Premise[]

As mentioned above, the show was hosted by Sarah Harris and features a panel of investors whom are all the "sharks" who listen to entrepreneur pitch ideas for a business or product they wish to develop. The sharks do receive money for their participation, but they invest their own money. these self-made multi-millionaires judge the business concepts and products pitched and then decide whether to invest their own money to help market and mentor each contestant.

The potential exists, if one of the sharks is interested, for a deal to be made right there on the show. However, if all of the sharks decline, the aspiring entrepreneur-contestant leaves with nothing. Shark Tank has been described as demonstrating "the drama of pitch meetings and the interaction between the entrepreneurs and tycoons".
