Shark Tank open casting call in Chicago

"Shark Tank," the critically acclaimed entrepreneurial reality show that has become a culturally defining series, will be holding an open casting call at The Small Business Expo in Chicago, IL on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at UIC Forum Main Hall (725 W. Roosevelt Rd. Chicago, IL 60608).

The "Shark Tank" open casting call will give entrepreneurs the opportunity to complete a one-minute pitch of their idea, product or business to a member of the show's official Casting Team. The format of the one-minute pitch is nearly identical to those commonly seen on the show itself each week.

Numbered wristbands (which will determine the order in which you make your "Shark Tank" pitch) will be distributed on the property from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. The interviews begin at 10:00 AM.

To apply for the "Shark Tank" open casting call, complete the official Application Packet. The Application Packet can be downloaded from the show's official website and must be completed when you bring it with you to the event. The Application Packet contains a wide variety of detailed questions about your business, product, brand or idea, so it is advised that you have it completed well in advance of the actual event.
