This Sunday on M-Net and Telkom SA’s popular entrepreneurial reality show, we see a former air force weapons specialist with a unique twist on a favourite South African pastime. There's also a qualified chemical engineer hoping to lure a Shark or two into a real tank of his own making; a young woman who quit her job in the banking sector to become a full-time entrepreneur, and a nerdy duo from Durban with a pitch that triggers a big reaction!
It's business as usual for the Sharks, who don't hold back when faced with financial projections that don’t add up, as well as sketchy knowledge when it comes to the nitty-gritty of the existing numbers in certain businesses. Some budding business owners have not even considered the financial implications of investing in marketing and distribution channels, despite knowing that they desperately need these crucial cornerstones if they’re ever going to grow their company. Despite that, the Sharks are willing to make some exceptions for characters that can prove their grit, hustle and passion time and again. Even if you don’t have all of the answers, these five experts may still back you all the way.
