Shark Tank In India Soon To Be Available On Screen

A very popular American show, Shark Tank, will soon be released in India as well. It is an entreprenuial theme based reality show. Since we all know the rising importance of the small businesses and entrepreneurs, especially during the pandemic, this couldn’t have come at a better timing.

What is Shark Tank?

As I said, it’s an American TV show and has won Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program four times (2014–2017) in the first four years of that category’s existence. The show was first aired on ABC in August 9, 2009. Since then, it has reinvigorated entrepreneurship among Americans.

The show is the American franchise of the international format Dragons’ Den, which originated in Japan as Money Tigers in 2001. It shows entrepreneurs presenting their business pitches to a panel of five investors or “sharks,” who decide whether to invest in their company or not.

The show was first hosted in the USA and has had 12 seasons. This show was released not only in the USA but also in Australia, Colombia, Vietnam, Nepal, and Mexico, etc. And finally, it will be launched in India on Sony TV.
