Successful Entrepreneurs to Return to ABC's SHARK TANK With New Venture

Krumins was first seen on Shark Tank in Season 1 when she pitched her prototype, the AVA the Elephant Talking Medicine Dispenser, to the Sharks. Shark Barbara Corcoran invested in Krumins and her prototype because she saw the Atlanta-based mom's passion for creating tools to help children and parents whose kids are sick.

"Shark Tank and my partnership with Barbara Corcoran helped turn my dream of helping children into a reality," says Krumins. "Without Shark Tank, there would be no AVA the Elephant Talking Medicine Dispenser, or my latest product, the AVA the Elephant Thermometer Sticker."

While Krumins and Rescate are thankful the Sharks saw potential in both of their products, they acknowledge that the reality TV show's format isn't necessarily the best path for every entrepreneur.

"Turning 15 minutes of fame into long-term growth is hard work," says Krumins. "To keep the momentum going after the cameras have stopped, you have to work around the clock."

"But if you can survive what happens in the Tank, the potential to thrive as an entrepreneur is unlimited," Rescate adds. "What more could we ask for?"

Shark Tank Episode 415 will air on ABC, Friday, February 8th at 9|8c. Check your local listings for exact time and channel.
