BILLIONAIRE SPANX FOUNDER SARA BLAKELY JOINS THE ‘TANK’
IN THIS NEW EPISODE OF ‘SHARK TANK,’ ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29
“Episode 902” – A graphic designer and a patent attorney from Olympia, Washington, have a high-tech way to make children’s story time more magical, but the Sharks are skeptical of their business model; a father from Brooklyn, New York, has a brand of functional paternity clothing for new dads; parents from Salem, Utah, bring in their five daughters to showcase a solution to hairy drain problems in the shower and bathtub; and a former pro football player and his business partner pitch a better version of a workout device.
Also, a profile on Sara Blakely, the founder and sole owner of the category-defining company, Spanx, and how her brand was born from a simple goal. She is an advocate of empowering women to be whatever they want to be in order to build successful businesses and create economic opportunity in their communities, on “Shark Tank,” airing SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
