The Businesses and Products from Season 14, Episode 22 of Shark Tank
First into the Tank is a social media star from New York City who ends up being familiar to the Sharks and pitches a board game focused on social media influencers this week on Shark Tank. Accompanied by a marching band, a Virginia Beach, Virginia, owner of a popular HBCU collegiate apparel line pitches the Sharks to invest in her brand. An entrepreneur from Charlotte, North Carolina, presents an accessory to make one's wardrobe more versatile by transforming T-shirts into crop tops. The Sharks are drawn into an emotional pitch by a father-and-son duo from Santa Barbara, California, who created innovative eyewear to address the problem of easily accessing reading glasses.
Influncers in the Wild - The Game
Influencers in the Wild is a modern twist on the classic board game, styled after the viral instagram account of the same name. Created by Tank Sinatra (reluctant to be called an influencer himself), the game is irreverent and pokes fun at the attention obsessed society we've all morphed into. With challenges, questions, rewards, and penalties (all based on experiences an influencer might have) there is more than enough fun and engagement to go around.
