In the broadcast Italia 1, born to finance innovative ideas, yesterday in its third and final episode, there have been twists: the refusal of one million euro by a startupper the “no” of investors in startups already known and appreciated . Good audience, success on social
Over 4.3 million euro invested in 20 start-ups and business ideas in just three episodes: it is the outcome of Shark Tank, international format broadcast in prime time on Italia 1 that saw five investors, precisely the “sharks”, bet their money on entrepreneurial innovation.
The program closed its doors yesterday at the third episode with a positive balance, not only in terms of funding, also audience. The transmission that led to the first time the startup to the forefront of Italian television programming concluded with 1,059,000 viewers and 5:49% share (7.32% on active public). Shark Tank in the first episode was followed by 1,382,000 viewers, with 6:39% share, in the second by 1.127 million viewers, with a share of 5.66% (7.40% in the commercial target). The public, as we see, went slowly to wane, partly because of the entrance in the good season that sees fewer and fewer people in front of TV sets. But all in all these numbers are very good for the broadcaster Mediaset.
The three episodes have been strong especially on younger: 14% share between aged 15-24 and 13:23% share of the target people aged 15-34. The climax was reached in the audience between 20-24 year olds, where the program has reached the 18.5% share. Excellent feedback on social: 30,000 tweets by the official hashtag #SharkTankIT that every week has dominated the ranking of the most discussed topics of the evening.
