About Robert Herjavec

NTEA is pleased to welcome Robert Herjavec, entrepreneur, author, and star of Shark Tank, to Work Truck Week® 2023. His moderated question-and-answer conversation will take place Thursday, March 9, as part of the NTEA Annual Meeting.

Herjavec is one of North America’s most recognizable business leaders. Born in Eastern Europe, he escaped communism in the former Yugoslavia and emigrated to Canada. From delivering newspapers and waiting tables to launching a computer company from his basement, his drive to achieve led him to create a better life for himself and his family. After building and selling several IT companies, he founded Herjavec Group in 2003, and it quickly became one of the world’s largest, privately held cybersecurity firms.

Herjavec shares his expertise with other entrepreneurs weekly as a leading Shark on ABC’s Emmy Award-winning hit show Shark Tank. On this long-running program, ambitious entrepreneurs pitch a panel of investors known as “Sharks” on investing in their companies. Herjavec also has written three best-selling books — Driven, The Will to Win, and You Don’t Have to Be a Shark: Creating Your Own Success.

Annual Meeting is not included in any registration package — it is available for purchase separately.
