What is NextShark?

Did you guys get the name from the TV show SharkTank?

No, the name actually comes from poker. In poker, a “shark” is usually the best at the table and looks for fishes to eat their chips up. To be a shark, one needs to not only understand the game, but also its surroundings. They also need to be able to adjust their playing style based on the different types of players they are up against. We believe one needs to have similar attributes of a poker “shark” in order to succeed in their endeavors.
