Open casting call for ABC hit show 'Shark Tank' Cycle 2 in Los Angeles

The hit ABC television show "Shark Tank" is conducting a national search to find the next successful and possibly wealthy entrepreneurs, inventors, businesspeople, dreamers, promoters, creators and innovators. In each episode, budding entrepreneurs are given an amazing opportunity to make their dreams come true.

Whether you have just an idea, a start up, or are already up and running successfully but looking to expand, if you feel you have a money-making business or idea and need financial help, then Shark Tank is the show for you. The casting directors are looking for aspiring entrepreneurs who can pitch their breakthrough business ideas, products, properties and services to moguls in hopes of landing investment funds.

If chosen, the Sharks - five self-made, brilliant, but tough investors - could be willing to invest their own personal cash and give you the funds you need to kickstart your idea. But the Sharks aren't just out to invest money. They also have a goal to own a piece of your next big idea. Who are the Sharks? Real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, infomercial industry pioneer Kevin Harrington, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion icon Daymond John, and financial expert Kevin O'Leary. And in season 2, successful businessman and comedian Jeff Foxworthy will join the panel for 3 episodes.

This is your chance to meet the Shark Tank Casting Teams in person, so come prepared to wow and dazzle them with your product/business/idea. Be advised that security may check your bag and you are responsible for your own parking. They do not validate.
