Unlike the college admission process, there are no pre-requisites to become an entrepreneur. All it takes is the recognition of a problem by a passionate individual with a solution to that problem.
But for entrepreneurs hoping to pitch their “solution” on “Shark Tank,” one specific resume builder will greatly increase their odds of admittance: Kickstarter.
Of the 60 companies that have appeared on this season of “Shark Tank,” over 1/3 had successfully raised funding on Kickstarter before pitching to the Sharks. Last week’s show featured Little Nomad playmats and the RinseKit, both “graduates” of Kickstarter’s Class of 2016.
