ABC’s Shark Tank made its debut on network television more than a decade ago. Since then, the panel of millionaires has invested more than $1 billion into hungry entrepreneurs in need of funding.

In addition to Squatty Potty, Scrub Daddy, and Simply Fit Board, several other start-up businesses have skyrocketed to success since appearing on the show — all thanks to the long list of venture capitalists who made it happen.

What is Nirav Tolia’s net worth?

According to reports, Nirav has an estimated net worth of $50 million. Before he began his entrepreneurial career, he majored in English Literature at Stanford and later secured a job at Yahoo!. Upon his exit from the company, he and several other industry professionals founded Epinions in 1999.

The consumer review platform set the stage for apps like TripAdvisor and Yelp and gave users the opportunity to read first-hand assessments of the products they were looking to buy. Four years after its inception, Epinions went public and was acquired by eBay. It survived 10 years before the company dissolved. But that wasn’t the only investment Nirav had up his sleeve.

In a message to Nextdoor employees, he wrote, “Just over eight years ago, I was blessed to be part of a group of seven friends who conceived of the idea behind Nextdoor.”
