Jason Grohoski and Michael Bolos seek an investor for DeskView, their suction-cup mounted standing desk, in Shark Tank episode 1021. Standing desks are becoming very popular as people don't want to sit in front of a computer all day. Most standing desks are very expensive and can get cluttered. DeskView offers a relatively inexpensive and sleek solution.
DeskView is a 25″ by 12″ desk that mounts to any non porous surface – like a window. It mounts to the window with vacuum pressured, industrial strength suction cups. When it's set up, it holds up to 40 pounds and it's big enough for a laptop. It lets you work virtually anywhere.
They got their second version off the ground with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $65,715 back in 2017. The guys partnered with product design firm Minimal to get it built. At just $235, it's a fraction of bulky standing desks that take up a lot of space. DeskView comes in white, wood or clear and it's available with free shipping on Amazon. The guys likely want a Shark to help with manufacturing and inventory. Will a Shark stand up and invest?

Jason and Michael will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They'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 they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards."
