Shark Tank Season 2, Episode 1

It was an exciting day on Monday when the “Sharks” visited Mrs. Hoffman's Management classroom again. Two teams put together a presentation to convince the Sharks to invest in their new business venture. In return, each potential investor proposed his investment plan that consisted of becoming part owner in the business, paying a royalty fee, or paying back interest on the investment. It was up to each team to decide which investor they would do business with.
