After eight years on Shark Tank, Kevin O'Leary tells TheStreet's Scott Gamm that entrepreneurs are changing how they pitch their businesses.

"They have grown up on the show, they know what certain Sharks do and how they invest... Different deal structures, the kind of portfolios we all have.
People come into the show much more knowledgeable about the deal they want to make with a particular Shark or group of Sharks, so we've all matured together."

O'Leary went on to call the show the world's most successful venture capital firm. He partly credits that to the low cost of customer acquisition because of their 10 million strong audience.
