Strategic Management PhD Candidate

I'm a graduate student doing research on entrepreneurship primarily. One issue I'm currently investigating is if gender differences have an effect on entrepreneurial activities such as fundraising, recovering from failure etc. I'd like to use Shark Tank Data as a potential data source for these investigations and I'm wondering if these entrepreneurs are representative enough of the population or whether they are specially selected for certain reasons. Is anyone able to point to specific criteria that entrepreneurs must possess to get on the show? Is there some sort of ranking methodology I can refer to to determine this? Thanks everyone!
