Shark Tank is coming to Bangladesh on entertainment platform Bongo. The company has signed a deal with Sony Pictures Television to produce a local version of the series. Robi has come onboard as the “Title Sponsor” of the show, alongside “Powered by” partner Startup Bangladesh.
The show allows entrepreneurs to pitch their business idea to a panel of investors known as “Sharks,” who can offer the entrepreneurs cash for a deal if they like the opportunity.
Bongo has signed director Gazi Shubro to shoot the show, and also partnered with SBK Tech Ventures to help support this initiative.
Sonika Bhasin, vice president of Distribution, South Asia, Sony Pictures Television, said: “After the tremendous success of Shark Tank in India with both the US and the local Indian version, we are thrilled to bring this phenomenon to Bangladesh. Shark Tank has inspired millions of people around the world, and we know it will do the same for business minds in Bangladesh. Sony Pictures Television looks forward to bringing even more of our hit formats to Bangladesh to continue to captivate and entertain audiences.”
