As part of a special episode involving active-duty entrepreneurs, three "Sharks," Kevin O'Leary, Daymond John, and Robert Herjavec visited the White House.

The Sharks were invited to the White House to participate in a Champions of Change event which supports veteran entrepreneurs.

"We're here to honor veteran entrepreneurs," said O'Leary.

In the episode, sharks Herjavec, John and O'Leary, along with the successful entrepreneurs behind jewelry line Stella Valle and energy drink Ruckpack, were invited speakers at the event, offering advice to veteran and active duty entrepreneurs.

"Don't start a business," said Herjavec. "Find a problem, solve a problem and the business will come."

"This is the epicenter of capitalism," said O'Leary.

First Lady Michelle Obama also appeared in a special message and told veterans across the country that the president and her "had their back."
