Welcome to the Shark Tank
We're big fans of ABC's Shark Tank here at TechRepublic. The show makes something of a game out of the hidden, business side of companies, offering plenty useful of lessons about innovation, planning and execution.
The show has been featuring an increasing number of tech start-ups lately, so we thought it'd be fun to share some of the most intriguing and successful companies Shark Tank has to offer.
So here they are ... with a couple of tech flops mixed in for good measure.
