Beyond the Tank is an American television show that premiered on the ABC network in May 2015. The show is a spin-off of the popular reality series Shark Tank, which features aspiring entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas to a panel of successful businesspeople, or "sharks," in hopes of securing funding and mentorship.

The format of Beyond the Tank is similar to Shark Tank, but with a twist. Instead of focusing on the initial pitch and negotiation process, Beyond the Tank looks at what happens to the businesses after they receive funding from the sharks. Each episode of the show features several segments, each of which focuses on a different business that has previously appeared on Shark Tank.

The show is hosted by entrepreneur and investor Kevin O'Leary, who is also one of the sharks on Shark Tank. In addition to O'Leary, several other sharks from Shark Tank make appearances on Beyond the Tank, including Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec, Mark Cuban, and Lori Greiner. Each episode also features interviews with the entrepreneurs themselves, as they discuss their experiences post-Shark Tank and what they have done with the funding and resources they received.

Beyond the Tank is a fascinating look at what happens when entrepreneurs have to put their ideas into action. In Shark Tank, the focus is on the idea and the pitch; once a deal is made, the cameras move on to the next contestant. Beyond the Tank picks up where Shark Tank leaves off, following the entrepreneurs as they face the challenges of building and growing a business.

The show covers a wide range of businesses, from food and beauty products to high-tech gadgets and services. Each episode is a mix of success stories and cautionary tales, as viewers see firsthand the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. Some businesses flourish after receiving funding from the sharks, while others struggle or even fail. The show is a reminder that even with the support of experienced and successful mentors, success in business is never guaranteed.

One of the strengths of Beyond the Tank is its focus on the people behind the businesses. While Shark Tank occasionally touches on the personal stories of the entrepreneurs, it is primarily a business-focused show. Beyond the Tank, however, delves deeper into the lives and motivations of the entrepreneurs. Viewers learn about their backgrounds, their families, and their struggles, as well as their hopes and aspirations for their businesses. The result is a more intimate and human portrayal of entrepreneurship.

Another strength of Beyond the Tank is its practical advice for entrepreneurs. While Shark Tank offers valuable feedback and mentorship in the moment, Beyond the Tank allows for a longer-term view of the businesses. Viewers see the entrepreneurs putting the sharks' advice into action, learning from their mistakes, and making changes as they go. The show offers a wealth of insights into the many challenges and rewards of building and growing a business.

Overall, Beyond the Tank is an engaging and informative show for anyone interested in business and entrepreneurship. It offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to succeed in the business world, and features some of the most successful and charismatic businesspeople in the industry. Whether you're a seasoned entrepreneur or just starting out, Beyond the Tank has something to offer.

Beyond the Tank is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (19 episodes). The series first aired on May 1, 2015.
