Derrek Burr seeks a Shark he can hang with when he pitches Kwik-Hang, an easy way to hang curtains, in Shark Tank episode 825. The product is a uniquely shaped bracket that nails into the top of the window frame. It quickly and securely holds the brackets for curtain rods, making screws in drywall unnecessary. The idea originated from Thomas Burr,Derrek's father, who sadly passed away from cancer.
In 2015, Mr. Burr conducted 2 unsuccessful Kickstarter campaigns to get the Kwik-Hang off the ground. Those projects failed as he battled cancer. Derrek decided to continue to build on his father's dream and try to get the Sharks to help him.
Kwik-Hang is currently for sale at only 11 bucks for a pair of basic brackets. There are different sizes for any kind of curtain rod installation and the prices range from $7-$18. Thomas Burr patented the Kwik-Hang and bought some basic machinery to manufacture them on a small-scale. Derrek probably wants a Shark's help scaling up production capabilities.
Will a Shark want to hang with Derrek and his business??

He'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he'll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards."
