4. Tower Paddle Boards
- What had seemed to be lost case, managed to scrape past the monstrous sharks with a deal of $150,000 at 30% stake from the generous Mark Cuban. The newbie entrepreneur, Stephan Aarstol, stuttered and stammered and almost froze while delivering his pitch, but in the end, he succeeded in shattering his jitters and alluring the sharks to take the bait.
- The profits zoomed past the measly $100,000 to a friggin million in just a few months of their show. Currently, Tower Paddle Boards are available across 40 different countries, and more and Aarstol is an inspiration for all the shaky but tenacious newbies trying to make a pitch in the tank of the business sharks.
- Rick Hopper succeeded in making the show one of the most memorable episodes of all times with his enigmatic business idea that won the hearts of millions. His innovative yet straightforward magnetic eyeglasses holder wasn’t quite the cup of tea of the business shark Kevin O’Leary, but Lori Greiner stepped up to secure the business with a grand deal of $150,000 at 65% stake.
- The revenue doubled, trebled, and shot into the sky with $8 million in the last couple of years. With the product currently being sold at over 6000 different outlets, the entrepreneur is recently talking business with Walgreens, Ace Hardware, and Walmart.
2. Plate Topper
- Business negotiations became pretty intense with the business pitch of the Plate Topper, a device that is fastened to a plate to make storing the leftover food more convenient. Invented by Michael Tseng, an engineer by hobby and doctor by profession, the Plate Topper managed to entice the interests of the sharks in the tank, so much so that a bidding war ensued for almost two hours, but alas! The deal tanked, and the sorry entrepreneur walked out without a single offer in his hand.
- But to heck with it! The Plate Topper succeeded phenomenally with Walmart stepping up to stock its shelves with the product in over 1000 of its outlets after the Plate Topper emerged the winner in the “Get On The Shelf” contest. The sharks might be kicking themselves, well at least a little bit, right about now.
1. Scrub Daddy
- Business entrepreneur Aaron Krause, maneuvered past the sharks with a smile on his face and a sunny-faced versatile cleaning scrub in his hand that he pitched in at the Shark Tank episode in 2012.
- The cleaning scrub varies in its firmness with the temperature of the water and handles any cleaning task that you can think of in the house.
- The extreme versatility of the scrub did not fail to make a mark in the minds of the shark Lori Greiner, who stepped up much against the discord of Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary with a large offer of $200,000 at 20% stake.
- Since then, product sales has been like a blazing inferno reaching up to $18 million, and available at thousands of retail outlets in the country. Krause is now collaborating with Lori Greiner to launch new products like scrub blocks and more.
