Barbara Corcoran Venture Partners
Corcoran’s credentials include straight Ds in high school and college and twenty jobs by the time she turned twenty-three. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country when she took a $1,000 loan to start The Corcoran Group, a New York residential real estate brokerage she sold in 2011 for $66 million. As one of the investor/sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank, Corcoran has invested in twenty-two businesses, competing to make those deals for all to see and pushing them on to success. Corcoran has recently launched Barbara Corcoran Venture Partners investors syndicate on AngelList, a platform that gives investors access to start-up and early-stage companies and lets them invest alongside Barbara for as little as $1,000.
