  • Robert Herjavec Star of ABC's hit show Shark Tank

    Robert Herjavec is one of North America's most recognizable business leaders. He has built and sold businesses on his way to amassing a personal fortune of more than $100 million. A first generation immigrant, Robert arrived in Halifax, Canada, on a boat with his parents after escaping communism in the former Yugoslavia. With only one suitcase, few prospects, $20, and no understanding of the English language, his unlimited dreams led him to experience the classic "rags to riches" immigrant story.

    From delivering newspapers, waiting on tables, and launching a computer company from his basement, he applied his immense energy and ambition with outstanding success. A serial entrepreneur, Robert has built and sold several companies, including a computer security company to AT&T and a technology company to Nokia for $225 million. Widely known as an entrepreneurial and motivational expert, Robert's business advice has appeared in numerous national newspapers and magazines.

    Following a short retirement, Robert launched The Herjavec Group, now acknowledged as Canada's fastest growing technology company. In a few short years The Herjavec Group has grown from $400,000 in sales with three people to $125 million in sales and almost 200 people. Robert's celebrity status has expanded with leading roles on Dragons' Den, the #1 TV show in Canada (now in its seventh season) and the American hit show Shark Tank (now in its third season, produced by Mark Burnett Productions, Sony, Disney and ABC).
