Do you have the next big business idea? The Shark Tank team is coming the Pacific Northwest!
The producers of the ABC reality series are on a nationwide search to discover the next successful (and possibly wealthy) entrepreneurs, inventors, businesspersons, creators and innovators. In each episode, budding entrepreneurs are given the unprecedented chance to make their business grow immediately.
Whether you just have a fantastic idea, are a start up or already operating successfully and looking to expand, if you feel you have a lucrative business or product and could use financial backing, then Shark Tank is just the show for you. Casting is looking for entrepreneurs who can pitch their breakthrough business concepts, products, properties and services to moguls in hopes of landing investment funds. If selected, five self-made, brilliant but tough investors (the Sharks) could be willing to part with their own hard-earned cash to give you the funding you need to jumpstart your venture. But the Sharks aren't just out to invest; they too have a goal -- to own a piece.
Your business or product should be top-notch and something the Sharks will really want to sink their teeth into. It might even spark a bidding war between them. Who knows? You could be the fortunate entrepreneur who gets the Sharks to reveal their true level of interest and to bid up the price of your investment!
Apply now for your chance to enter the Shark Tank and see if your idea is good enough for a Shark investment.
Attend an Open Call where you will be given the opportunity to do a 1-minute pitch of your business/product/idea to a member of the Casting Team -- just like you would as if you were on the show. Come prepared to wow and dazzle us. Be advised: security may check your bag and you are responsible for your own parking. To apply at an Open Call you must have a completed Application Packet. Download the Application HERE and bring it with you. Please take the time to complete it fully and legibly.
All Open Calls are open to the general public. As long as you arrive during the allotted "Numbered Wristbands Distributed" time and receive a wristband you will have the chance to pitch. There is no reason to camp out the night before. Please be respectful of the neighborhood in regards to trash and noise. If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com. We will get back to you as soon as we can. Please do NOT call the venue.

- You will have time to go back to your vehicle after you receive your wristband to get any large or bulky props or equipment.
