Kevin O’Leary, the Boston venture capitalist known for his no-nonsense style on the ABC television show “Shark Tank,” did nothing to dispel his reputation as a ruthless, money-loving businessman when he appeared at Brigham and Women’s Hospital Wednesday.
In the world according to O’Leary, businesses are supposed to make money, period, not solve the world’s problems.
“Business is war,” he said. “There are winners and there are losers.”
O’Leary was part of a panel of venture capitalists and scientists who participated in the Brigham’s version of “Shark Tank,” helping to select four research projects that will each receive a $50,000 grant.
