Johannesburg - In last week’s premiere episode of M-Net and Telkom SA’s highly entertaining new reality show, Shark Tank South Africa, marketing guru Gil Oved became the first of the show’s five investors to clinch a deal.

He persuaded charming entrepreneur Vusi Ravele, who creates trendy home and décor items, to choose him as his future business partner, leaving fellow Sharks Vinny Lingham, Marnus Broodryk, Dawn Nathan-Jones and Romeo Kumalo green with envy.  (Read more here.)

Will there be another big bite in the tank in this week’s episode? What’s for sure is that there will be some great bait to pique their interest!

This week's entrepeneurs

Amongst this week’s entrepreneurs are two suave and confident young gentlemen who try to reel the Sharks into their 3D printing business.

The Sharks will also encounter an ambitious entrepreneur who expects them to dive really, really deep into their pockets as he wants to make a splash in the tourism industry with his second-hand submarine. Then there’s a rugby fanatic who believes that they will score big time if they support his unique online tool, as well as a caring mother from Kempton Park whose babies inspired her to manufacture a comfortable rocking chair. 

One of these budding entrepreneurs will get the Sharks all fired up, while another one’s pitch will have one of the Sharks shedding some tears. 

To see how the action unfolds in this week’s Shark Tank South Africa, tune into M-Net 101 on Sunday night at 18:00.  

Also note that this is the Sunday night timeslot during which all DStv customers can get a taste of what’s available on M-Net 101, so if you’re not a DStv Premium customer, you can also go to channel 101 to watch Shark Tank SA.

The series will also be available on DStv Catch Up and will be streamed live on DStv Now.
