Lisa D'Amato hopes a Sharks dares to invest in Dare U Go, her bib that's also a food container and serving vessel all in one, on Shark Tank episode 1014. D'Amato was on the show America's Top Model in its fifth season and won the contest in the season 17 “All Stars” show. Now, as an on the go mother of two toddlers, she wants to make meals on the go easier for parents and kids.
D'Amato got her business off the ground with a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2017 that raised $37,511. She started shipping product in early 2018. The Dare U Go is a new twist on the old-fashioned bib. It's made of food-grade silicon and hangs around a child's neck like a regular bib.
The hook is it has re-sealable compartments for storing food and snacks right in the bib. It's both storage and plate at the same time and, since the bib is already on the child, it's easy to tote around too. Each Dare U go bib costs $22.99 and comes in a variety of bright colors; they even come with a “spork.” It's available at Wal-Mart and Amazon, plus at retailers in over a dozen countries.
D'Amato likely wants a Shark's help with exploding growth. Will a Shark dare to invest?

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