Every new episode we go into the tank with four more Shark Tank products and four more entrepreneurs in hopes of landing a lucrative partnership. The all new January 9th, 2015 episode brings us three sisters from San Francisco, California who pitch their dating app that introduces singles to friends of friends; another San Francisco native pitches his app that is THE solution for a common online shopping problem; a former publisher from Old Brookville, New York shows off her button down and pullover shirt that helps you look skinny; a couple of married Wall Street brokers from New York bring pitch their product described as a compact way to eat your bagel. A four part series, lets learn more about these entrepreneurs!
Coffee Meets Bagel Dating App – While it is easy to say “yet” another dating app, contrast to the hookup friendly Blendr and Tinder, Coffee offers another take at the realm of online dating. The concept of Coffee Meets Bagel is simply getting setup with a profile and networking through your social circle of friends to find a potential love interest. It takes out the arguably strange and shameful stigma that comes with the territory of online dating, and instead brings in a bit of that human element. It can virtually be compared to meeting a friend of a friend at a dinner party. For lack of a better analogy, Coffee Meets Bagel is like the LinkedIn of the dating world.
Will Coffee Meets Bagel get some Sharks in on the deal? We’ll have to wait and see. Shark Tank returns January 9, 2015 at airs at 9PM/8PM CST on ABC.
