    Pan’s Mushroom Jerky earned the attention of the sharks on Shark Tank when it was pitched by entrepreneur, Michael Pan on episode 6 of season 12 of Shark Tank in 2020. Michael wanted to integrate Malaysian ingredients along with healthy vegetarian options, such as mushrooms as a substitute for meat. Michael developed the product, mushroom jerky, as a meat substitute. Thereafter, Pan’s Mushroom Jerky was established in 2018. On the show, Michael asked for $300,000 for a 10% stake in his company. Mark Cuban considered the option of an 18% share after Pan negotiated down from Cuban’s original offer of a 25% stake in the company.
