All of the sharks liked your idea, business plan, and business acumen. You managed to convince all of them to invest in your idea! Congratulations!
Yes, but to mixed opinion
While you gave a strong presentation, a couple of the sharks highlighted what they thought were flaws in your invention or business plan. You managed to only convince two of the sharks to invest.
Your pitch left the sharks confused and unwilling to invest in your idea. Even if your idea is brilliant, it doesn't mean a thing if you can't come up with a good business strategy.
The sharks were left mostly unimpressed by what you had to offer, but you did get one on your side. Hey, it's better than nothing.
