See how the Sharks invest: Angel investor crunches the numbers on ‘Shark Tank’

How do the sharks on Shark Tank have a tendency to take a position? Thanks to at least one angel investor and VC agency co-founder, we now have a useful information.

Halle Tecco, co-founder and managing director of Rock Well being, a seed VC agency that funds health-care/tech startups, can be a fan of watching Shark Tank, in keeping with her Q&A in CNN Cash. The angel investor took to Twitter this week to replace her newest knowledge on how the Sharks make investments:

Can we simply cease and pause for a second on the undeniable fact that she retains a Shark Tank database? Dangerous. Ass.

Tecco’s quantity crunching, based mostly on Seasons 1-5, discovered that the ladies Sharks are inclined to favor investing in firms led by ladies. Barbara Corcoran invests in female-led firms 47 p.c of the time, whereas Lori Greiner’s female-led offers land at 29 p.c.

Greiner nonetheless invests in males greater than ladies, with 53 p.c of her offers going to males. The boys are inclined to favor firms run by males, with Robert Herjavec main the manner — 74 p.c of his offers are with male-founded firms.

Curiously sufficient, all the Sharks have invested much less in firms with blended founders (women and men), with percentages in the teenagers.

When you go into Tecco’s charts, along with noting gender, she breaks down Seasons 1-6 by firm, trade, deal, quantity invested, fairness and valuation.

Right here’s one thing else to chew on: Based on Tecco’s knowledge, ladies shut about half the offers that males do at about half the common valuation. She has 67 offers closing for girls with 142 for males. The common valuation for a ladies’s deal is about $760,000, and for males it’s round $1.5 million.

Combined teams proceed to carry out simply as badly right here: Solely 40 offers have closed, however at a better valuation round $1 million.

Remember the fact that extra male-led firms pitch the Sharks, which is a giant motive why they in all probability obtain extra funding {dollars}. Tecco’s charts have 295 male-led firms pitching vs. 125 female-led firms.

Right here’s hoping we see extra ladies and blended groups pitching the Sharks quickly.
