ABC describes the show as, "The entrepreneurs who dare to enter the tank must try to convince the sharks to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they desperately need to turn their dreams into million-dollar realities. All of the good, bad, emotional and even absurd pitches help showcase the “I wish I had thought of that” business ideas and products.

But the Sharks have a goal too: to get a return on their investment and own a piece of the next big business idea. When the Sharks hear an idea worth sinking their teeth into, they’re more than ready to declare war and fight each other for a piece of it." If the sharks will then decide whether they are interested in investing in the idea/product or not and then offer a deal in case they are interested. If multiple sharks are interested then it leads to a bidding war of sorts amongst them
