Here We Grow Again

By | LinkedIn Influencer | No Comments

I’m often recognized because of my role on Shark Tank but what many don’t appreciate is that I work 24/7/365 as the Founder and CEO of The Herjavec Group (THG). Those who know the managed security industry will know that I’m just like THG’s Security Operations Center – a little IT humour never hurts. The Herjavec Group is one of the largest independent managed service providers in North America and we are in the midst of a significant $250 million, 3-year expansion plan.

What’s in a Perfect Shark Tank Pitch?

By | LinkedIn Influencer | No Comments

As I reflect on Season 5 from my red chair, it has been another exciting, funny, and surprising season of fantastic business opportunities, excited entrepreneurs and the odd bit of blood in the shark-infested water. The investments I’ve made were in leading edge technology (Breathometer and Revolights) and new twists on an existing theme (Tipsy Elves, Happy Feet, Hamboards).
