5 Things to Know, Including a Local Teen CEO Appears on ‘Shark Tank’

1. Wunderkind hits primetime

Teenage entrepreneur and Gladiator Lacrosse CEO Rachel Zietz will be swimming with the sharks tonight. The high school student, who started her multimillion-dollar company because she felt most lacrosse equipment could be improved, actually filmed her segment on ABC’s popular “Shark Tank” reality show more than a year ago. Since then she’s gathered national media attention for launching her über-successful company. And while I don’t know the outcome of her segment, my money is on Zietz. After all, the daughter of TouchSuite CEO Sam Zietz launched her company at age 13. I suspect those sharks never stood a chance. Tune in tonight at 9 p.m. EST. (Congrats, Rachel!)
