About the event

This is a casting call for Season 12 of Shark Tank. The casting call is the first step in the casting process. The casting process is the same as Open Calls for Shark Tank.  The Shark Tank Diversity Tour is curated to get more women, people of color, and other diverse entrepreneurs in the pipeline for Shark Tank. 

Entrepreneurs should be prepared to pitch their business one-on-one to a casting team member in about 90 seconds. Several minutes of follow-up questions may be asked.  

Entrepreneurs may bring product/props to support their pitch. However, space and time are very limited; they should only bring what is necessary.  There will be no audio/visual connection available for electronic presentations, powerpoint, etc... 

Entrepreneurs selected to move forward in the process will be contacted within 2-3 weeks. Only entrepreneurs selected to move forward will be contacted. 

Filming for Season 12 will be in Los Angeles (Culver City), CA in June and September. New episodes will air from October 2020 - April 2021.
