Here's how this founder sought to overcome Shark Tank's apparent aversion to tech startups that had already raised capital

Ming Zhao, CEO of PROVEN, an AI-powered skin care startup, explained how she tried to overcome Shark Tank's apparent aversion to supporting tech startups that had already raised.  "The sharks are not the most coddling of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs," based largely on the view that tech startup founders or entrepreneurs who are known to have more access to venture capital and other investors, and shouldn't be looking for funding on Shark Tank, she told Business Insider.  She also prepared to b...

Macquarie says it's betting on Microsoft, Dropbox, and 4 other stocks that are 'growing at a reasonable price' — or GARP — as market volatility sends other market caps soaring beyond their real value (MSFT, NOW, CRWD, PFPT, CHKP)

Investors should bet on the stocks of software companies that Wall Street refers to as GARP, or "growing at a reasonable price," analysts said Tuesday. They pointed to six top GARP bets: Microsoft, ServiceNow, Dropbox, Crowdstrike, Proofpoint, and Check Point. Amid rising fears of another tech bubble, they said the six software names were solid bets given their role in the work-from-home and school-from-home trends. "While we don't feel qualified that we can call the top of what looks like a b...

17 Small Business Financing Options to Compare

According to a federal survey, 44% of small business owners borrowed money to meet expenses. No surprise there, you’re thinking. We’ve been closed. We haven’t been making any money. Of course small business owners borrowed money to keep the cash flow coming. The survey is from 2019. In other words, it’s no shame to get a loan for business. It wasn’t in 2019, and it isn’t now. Borrowing money is a part of doing business. Business loans can be part of a business plan for growth. According to the ...

Planning, Not Just Hoping for the New Normal

Last week, Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec told a CNBC interviewer that now that we’re in a pandemic, his sole goal for his portfolio of startups is subsistence; he’s operating them on a day-to-day basis, doing whatever he must to keep their doors open. His long-term planning horizon, he said, has shrunk from years to one week. While crisis-management requires any business to focus on the immediate-term, leaders should simultaneously carve out some capacity for visionary thinking. No one knows how ...
