A father-son duo from Ohio will help the Sharks get creative while sharing their solution for storing paint efficiently; two tech-savvy entrepreneurs from Massachusetts will put the pedal to the metal when they show off their portable electric vehicle charger; a husband and wife from New Jersey think they can smell success as they pitch their product designed to keep garments safe from bacteria and odor; and an entrepreneur from Oregon will try to convince the Sharks he’s brought blankets into the 21st century. With their inventive pitches, will any of them convince the Sharks to invest in their budding business?
