Unbreakable Business Challenge guest Robert Herjavec is known for his leading role in ABC’s Shark Tank. But the road to get there was far from easy.

Robert’s journey began when he and his parents immigrated from Eastern Europe to Canada — by boat.

Their goal?

To escape former Yugoslavia Communism.

With one suitcase for the whole family, they moved to Toronto, where they had to start from scratch.

The Herjavec family lived in a friend’s basement for two years. His parents barely had any money, and they struggled for quite some time. Even Robert waited tables and delivered newspapers as a kid.

However, the situation only motivated him to work towards something, run harder, push harder, and do more in his life.

And with hard work and dedication, Herjavec was able to turn his passion for technology into a successful business. 

Robert Herjavec’s Success with Computers

In 1990, Herjavec founded a cybersecurity company from his basement, which he named BRAK Systems.

10 years later, he sold BRAK Systems to AT&T — for $30.2 million.

Then, in 2003, he founded The Herjavec Group, which became a leader in global cybersecurity and one of America’s fastest-growing tech companies.

Shark Tank & Personal Accomplishments

Known as the “Nice Shark” on ABC’s Shark Tank, Robert joined the first season of the show in 2009.

Since then, he has invested in companies such as Happy Feet, Tipsy Elves, and many more.

In addition to his wins as an entrepreneur and business television icon, Herjavec is also an accomplished author. He has published three bestselling books: “Driven,” “The Will to Win,” and “You Don’t Have to Be a Shark: Creating Your Own Success.”
