In last night’s episode of the weekly ABC reality show “Shark Tank,” the Corcoran Group founder Barbara Corcoran and the other investors on the show’s panel listened to presentations from a woman hoping to expand her line of happiness-spreading products, a man hoping to expand his graffiti removal business and a man with a Web site where people can return unwanted gift cards. Corcoran beat out three other members of the show’s panel of sharks with a $350,000 investment for a stake in a company that makes slipcovers for babies’ playpens and markets them to hotels, cruise ships and parents.
