Shark Tank is a popular reality TV show that features entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas to a panel of potential investors, aka "sharks." But are the sharks actually angel investors?
It's a common misconception that the sharks on Shark Tank are angel investors, when in reality, they are venture capitalists. Angel investors typically invest their own personal money in early-stage companies and startups, whereas venture capitalists invest money from a pool of investors in more established companies.
So, while the sharks on Shark Tank may be able to provide some helpful advice and mentorship to entrepreneurs, they are not actually angel investors.
