Dynamic entrepreneur and Shark Tank investor, Robert Herjavec, joined the Small Business Revolution in 2015, inspired by the movement’s celebration of the entrepreneurial sprit. Herjavec serves as the Small Business Revolution’s co-host, business and financial expert and was also a featured expert in the movement’s long form documentary about the importance of small business in America. This year, Herjavec lends his entrepreneurial and business expertise to Bristol Borough’s small businesses in the second season of the “Main Street” series.
A first-generation immigrant from Yugoslavia, Herjavec arrived in Canada with his family at the age of 8. Learning his work ethic from his parents, Herjavec did everything from delivering newspapers and waiting tables, to launching a computer company from his basement.
Herjavec’s entrepreneurial drive led to his success today, having built and sold several IT companies to major corporations. In 2003, Herjavec launched The Herjavec Group, one of North America’s largest IT security providers. Herjavec is also a best-selling author providing business inspiration and advice to readers.
