Shark Tank Australia Casts Net Ahead Of Jaw-Some Q4 Launch On 10 And 10 Play.

Shark Tank Australia is ready to make a splash again in 2024 with production set to start soon ahead of its launch on 10 and 10 Play later this year.

The production is currently casting the net wide, searching for Australia’s next wave of budding entrepreneurs and startups, who will pitch their ideas to the Sharks for investment with the dream of taking their businesses to the next level.

Sarah Thornton, Network Executive Producer for Shark Tank Australia and Head of Non-Scripted at Paramount Australia, said: “Australia is home to some of the world’s most successful startups and Shark Tank taps into our deep pool of entrepreneurial talent right across the country.

“There is no other show like this, where genuine investors put their own money, business acumen and time up for grabs.

“It’s no surprise there has been feverish interest to pitch this year, with applications already up 150% on last year.

“I’m loving the innovation, talent and great Aussie characters we’re seeing coming through and can’t wait to share them with viewers on Shark Tank Australia,” said Sarah.

Last season also proved this global smash hit format has a local contingent of devoted fans.

“This show offers brands next level audience engagement across a community of fans inspired by great startup ideas,” added Michael Stanford, Head of Paramount ANZ Brand Studio.

“It’s a one-of-a-kind format that aligns with how brands can and do support small business, while demonstrating the wide appeal of the entrepreneurial mindset.

“It’s no surprise advertisers wanted it back as much as we did,” said Michael.

Fans of Shark Tank Australia also swam across social media with #SharkTankAU content hooking 17 million views on TikTok.

Last year, our Sharks pledged $5.2 million into a diverse array of projects including Stryda, manufacturers of cork inner soles, Suitor, online rental for men’s formalwear, and Mimi & Co. with designer reusable modern cloth nappies, to name just a few of the businesses who have prospered from plunging into Shark Tank Australia.

This season’s shiver of Sharks will be confirmed soon, who will be ready to dive in and circle the tank to net the next big idea.

There’s still time to submit business ideas to enter the tank with casting open until 24 May at 10play.com.au/casting. 

Shark Tank Australia is based on the Dragons’ Den format owned by Japan’s Nippon TV and distributed by Sony Pictures Television to more than 50 territories globally. Shark Tank Australia is produced for Network 10 by SPT’s Curio Pictures.
