Georgia Tech graduate makes pitch on 'Shark Tank'

Sandy Springs businessman debuts on Shark Tank

ABC’s Shark Tank is slated to feature another metro Atlanta entrepreneur when the TV show airs on Friday at 9 p.m.

Patrick Whaley, who founded Sandy Springs-based Titin, taped a segment where he pitches his line of weighted compression training clothing to the show’s panel of wealthy investors. Whaley was a Georgia Tech engineering student when he was shot by robbers in a Midtown parking deck. He later was featured in an Atlanta Journal-Constitution Personal Journey feature last year.

At least 11 Georgia startups have appeared on Shark Tank since the popular show first aired.
