Here Are The 100+ Women-Owned Businesses That Made It On ‘Shark Tank’

Shark Tank is a hit show that has been building entrepreneurs since its inception in 2009. There have been many inventions and companies that were a sensation on the show and some that simply could not sustain after funding. We’ve rounded up all of the product and service ideas that were created and pitched by women to help give you some guidance around what ideas are viewed as profitable by high-level investors. We also did some analysis and captured some key trends about the 145 female-owned businesses that appeared on Shark Tank:

  • The products and services on Shark Tank pitched by women that received the most investment deals were in the food, fashion, and baby/children category.
