Editors note: This is part two of a three part series. Please find part one here.
In part 2 Latin Biz Today partner Tina Trevino gets the behind the scenes “Shark Tank” story from entrepreneur P-nuff Hispanic business owner Dr. Juan Salinas and how he landed Mark Cuban.
What did it actually take to make to be selected as a “Shark Tank” contestant?
According Dr. Juan Salinas two years, three to four background checks on his Hispanic business, his personal finances, a check on felonies, etc. Create an initial pitch video and be invited but with no guarantee! Then create another video pitch with worth the producer. Create a script, memorize it and get tripped up on my memorization. A producer who put me at ease by level setting.
It was during Covid so the set was not in LA, instead Las Vegas and the actual pitch tapping was a difference from the “Shark Tank” judges. Fortunately Mark Cuban became a partner/investor.
As a body builder and triathlete he focused on “heathy” food and eventually decided to use his expertise to create high protein snacks and launch his own business called P-nuff.
