Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

THE first se­ries of Shark Tank pro­duced some big suc­cess sto­ries. Here are three of the new in­ven­tions that Sharks Steve Bax­ter, Ja­nine Al­lis, An­drew Banks, Naomi Sim­son and Dr Glen Richards will fight over this sea­son.


En­ter­tain­ment en­tre­pre­neur Lyn­ton V. Har­ris de­vises amuse­ment park at­trac­tions themed around suc­cess­ful movies. When he won the rights to cre­ate the Shark­nado Alive ex­pe­ri­ence, based on the hugely suc­cess­ful Shark­nado movies, Har­ris’ first thought was to get Shark Tank in­volved. Har­ris of­fers an op­por­tu­nity to be­come 50 per cent part­ners and says they’ll make their money back from the first in­stal­la­tion.


Will Davies and Dave Trum­bull come into the Tank look­ing for $ 300,000 for a 4 per cent stake in their car­shar­ing busi­ness, Car Next Door, which al­lows car own­ers to make money by rent­ing out their cars. Af­ter two years’ trad­ing, the com­pany is turn­ing over $ 2 mil­lion a year with a gross profit of $675,000.

2- SHU

Matt Gil­lett is a de­signer and in­no­va­tor with a novel ap­proach to ver­sa­tile footwear. The 2- SHU are flip-flops that can con­vert into shoes, en­abling the owner to tran­si­tion seam­lessly from an af­ter­noon at the beach to din­ner at a nice restau­rant or a night out at a club. Matt wants $ 150,000 for 40 per cent of his com­pany.
