If you are not familiar with the Shark Tank, the show ABC, companies that fall to investors from all walks of life, including very loud Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks. It’s strange to become a family favorite for many people I know, mainly because they get to yell at the TV and make predictions about whether there will be someone to invest or not to talk about what they do, if they Investors were in a chair.
The spice up this season, the producers brought several guests. One of them might be familiar to you, Chris Sacca lowercase Capital. He has invested in such Uber Twitter, and uses the crap out of the products that he puts in.
How is it real? Sacca tell the sharks do not know anything about the companies before they are but who they are. If you know something about them or have already spoken in them before you can recuse himself.
Sacca makes his debut on the show tonight at 9 pm, which I hope will not be his last, as I was curious to see how he gets on with Cuba in particular. I chatted with him yesterday about how things went over the tape, whether it shows in real or garbage, and if we can expect to see him again, pop.
TC: Are you nervous at all for ventilation? I mean, you’ve done television, but on a slightly different audience. Shark Tank massive
CS :. I was not nervous. I think being in front of a large audience, live, generates more adrenaline. He felt much as an opportunity to bust chops with other sharks, it would be natural for me. I know Damon and Mark well. I met with the other. Once they started rolling the camera was in the game competing with other sharks.
I went to the day before the tape to see how it rolled and then saw one when I shot. FoMO I was to be there, not being on the show. Once a mixture has been watched by the torture.
TC: Are you surprised that you’ve experienced on set, based on what you saw at home on TV
CS: , when the camera rolls, friendship on the sidelines. It’s an incredibly competitive people. You will see in my episode, I get a little. I bite, too. What I was surprised at how it was absolutely real Shark Tank. This is not a script, or controlled or manipulated. Deals get done there is very real deal. Entrepreneurs are already practiced. You ask what you want to ask supply and onions if you want and how you want. You invest your own money.
It was raw and real, and was really impressed.
TC: that preparations for the companies
CS: Demo days when they come to pass. They have 45 minutes to an hour and a half, and we have to ask what we want. It turns into an 8-minute television, but there are a thoughtful Q & a session and I feel really comfortable with the information I get.
TC: any areas outside of your norm, you can invest in for the show
CS 😕 I have a wide range in my personal portfolio: restaurants, clothing, equipment and consumer goods. I only invest in things where I can personally and materially affect the outcome, and that makes all the fun for me.
TC: We’re going to see another side of you that we do not see the events or Twitter? Sacca shark like
CS: My current reputation is probably already rather Sharky. I think you get a true understanding of me to look and I was never afraid to speak their minds. I think I found that shark tank was the perfect place to do what I do. To be “inside” the screen was a privilege.
TC: Does your family think it’s great that you’re going to be on TV
CS: I saw the episode last night, and they got to see him last night . Every time I came to, the children said, “Dad!” They are big fans. I really do not understand what a family show it was, but as it turns out, my 9 and 11 year old nephew and niece to watch every episode. To find out how many children are inspired by the show right now, I felt really good. He felt the show, which I could be proud of.
TC: This makes you want to take a chance (ha) of the technology to try other areas of investment
CS: Every company in the world should be at the highest level of digital execution. Internet commerce should revolve around the great principles of design, etc. Many of my skills to translate almost every opportunity. There are things that I saw, where I think my strengths complement even sharks too … it’s cool.
TC: You know, Mark, but they have a room on the set for both of you
CS: We are going head to head mercilessly. Without giving away anything, we will continue.
There’s finally out there, to make the Cuban honestly.
TC: The most important thing you have fun doing it
CS: I have a lot of fun. The reason why I think it’s fun, and is the reason why I got into investing in the first place. Investment game has more and more, more politics friction. More sharp elbows. All this administrative overhead with large stakes. Founders and products on the Shark Tank reminds me of when I started.
TC: Are you ready to be recognized on the street
CS :. I fully intend to mix with all bearded cowboy shirt worn investors
I have not seen the episode, just above the clip. Just the fact that it is definitely worth a look. One of the best things that I was told Sacca during our discussion was on the theme of the show allowing it to be his. Most other sharks tend to dress up for the shoots.
I told them from the get go :. I will not and I can not do it if I have to wear a suit, my career in Silicon Valley will be completed
have any suggestions or would any deal to be done as a result of the show? It looks like it. Sacca told me that there are a lot of experienced entrepreneurs, but some mom and pop stores, too:
They got some companies that if they were going to lower case, I would like to make a deal.
to the Shark, Sacca.
