funkkoff!Joelle Flynn and Sonia Hounsell pitch Funkkoff!, their portable tooth cleaning solution, in Shark Tank episode 1414. They formed the business in 2019 after Flynn attended a wine tasting tour in Napa Valley. She had a toothbrush and toothpaste with her to clean her teeth after each vineyard stop. As she pulled her lipstick case from her purse, she envisioned a tooth refresher in a similar, compact form. When she got home, she put together her first prototype out of a Chapstick tube and the head of her electric toothbrush.

She immediately contacted her lifelong friend, Sonia, for help and they set off on their journey together. They make a good team. Flynn is formerly the youngest stock broker at Bank of America and has a background in start-ups. Hounsel has a background in branding and marketing and has worked in that capacity for a variety of businesses including McKinsey & Company.

The flagship product for Funkkoff! is their patented TeethRefreshers, a lipstick-sized tooth brush and built in tooth paste dispenser. Inside is an  all natural, digestible, vegan peppermint & vanilla tooth gel. Each product should last 30 days or so. One TeethRefresher will set you back $22. They get cheaper as you buy more in one of their bundles. They’re available in 50 or so independent retailers, the company website and Amazon.

They got things started with a successful IndieGoGo campaign that raised $34,571 and a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $ $34,045 in January, 2020. They didn’t deliver until nearly 2 years later due to supply chain issues surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, they want a Shark’s help bringing Funkkoff! to the masses.

FUNKKOFF! Shark Tank Recap

Joelle and Sonia will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner and guest Shark Emma Grede 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.” A full pitch re-cap on FUNKKOFF! will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
