Shark Tank Bangladesh Season 1 is now accepting applications, offering a unique platform for Bangladeshi entrepreneurs to showcase their innovative products and ideas. This Bangladeshi adaptation of the popular reality show Shark Tank, widely embraced in the Indian subcontinent, is open to home business owners, founders, and creative minds.
Bongo, the leading OTT platform in Bangladesh, has partnered with Sony Pictures Entertainment to bring this thrilling show to the country. The show’s sponsors include Robi as the “title sponsor,” Startup Bangladesh as the “powered by sponsor,” and Prime Bank as the “banking partner.”
Aspiring entrepreneurs from across Bangladesh, whether homegrown or non-resident, have the opportunity to pitch their business concepts to a panel of Sharks (investors) on the show. The Sharks will evaluate these pitches and decide whether to invest in the presented businesses, providing a potential breakthrough for participants.
For those beyond Bangladesh’s borders, as long as their business or idea caters to the Bangladeshi market, non-resident Bangladeshis and foreign individuals are welcome to pitch in Dhaka. This opens up a new avenue for entrepreneurs not only to secure capital but also to gain exposure to a vast audience eagerly anticipating the Bangladeshi edition of Shark Tank.
The show follows the iconic “Shark Tank” format, a global phenomenon that has attracted audiences in over 40 countries. To date, the “Sharks” on the show have invested over $600 million, catapulting numerous companies to remarkable growth. Entrepreneurs entering the “Shark” ecosystem have not only received investments but have also witnessed significant business expansion, generating billions in sales post-show.
Bongo is assembling a formidable panel of local Sharks from diverse industries and large-scale businesses. The identities of these business moguls will be unveiled in due course, promising an exciting lineup that will undoubtedly amplify the show’s impact.
Deepto TV Channel will broadcast the show, and all episodes will be available for streaming on Bongo OTT, accessible on mobile devices or large-screen smart TVs in Bangladesh.
