Team AquaVault is back in the spotlight.

You may recall that the Aventura-based startup made a splash on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank in March of last year, garnering an investment by Daymond John. AquaVault is the maker of portable safes that can be locked onto the backs of beach chairs or onto bikes or even dorm room closet bars.

Now, AquauVault will featured on the Friday night episode of Beyond the Tank, which will air on ABC on Friday at 8 p.m., just before Shark Tank. The show will follow up on the company since the Shark Tank show.

The AquaVault co-founders say viewers will get a deep dive into what Jonathan Kinas, Avin Samtani and Robert Peck have gone through after making a deal in the tank, and what it's like to endure the roller coaster of being an entrepreneur. Mistakes are made, lessons learned, experiences embraced.

Since the company founders originally pitched on Shark Tank, they say they have successfully figured out how to team up with some of the biggest players in the industry, including hotels, water parks, theme parks, casinos and cruise ships.

Although being on Shark Tank undeniably contributed toward the jump start in their expansion, Kinas said it was what the team did with that experience that catapulted the brand. He said the show will capture strategy sessions with Shark Daymond John, who at moments strongly disagrees with their decision making, as the co-founders try and corner a market that they are essentially creating.
