Amazon Teams With ‘Shark Tank’

Amazon has become an official retail partner for “Shark Tank.” The new Amazon Launchpad Shark Tank Collection highlights products seen on the show.

Amazon’s Launchpad is a program that helps startups launch, market and distribute their products. The collaboration, which coincides with the premiere of “Shark Tank” season 10, provides an opportunity for successfully-funded Shark Tank startups and entrepreneurs to launch and showcase their products on Amazon.com. “Shark Tank” season 10 airs on Sundays on ABC.

More than 70 products that successfully received funding from Sharks during seasons 1-9 are now available for purchase on Amazon.com, with products from season 10 and beyond to be featured in the Amazon Launchpad Shark Tank Collection in the future. All startups and entrepreneurs that Sharks have invested in will be considered for the Amazon Launchpad program. In addition, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is offering a $15,000 credit for cloud computing services to each eligible “Shark Tank” entrepreneur.

“We are thrilled to be working with the popular ‘Shark Tank’ franchise, highlighting products from startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses,” said Jim Adkins, vp/Amazon. “The Amazon Launchpad program is all about empowering creators and inventors, enabling them to reach hundreds of millions of customers. By teaming up with ‘Shark Tank,’ we are making it fun and easy for fans of the show to discover a wide variety of unique innovations and cutting-edge products.”
