12 year old Moziah Bridges pitches the his line of hand crafted bow ties, eponymously named Mo's Bows, in Shark Tank episode 522. Young Mr. Bridges started his business when he was just nine years old. He wanted a cool bow tie, so he took some of his grandmother's extra fabric and made his own. Before long he was making them for sale, and Mo's Bows was born.
Bridges is becoming quite famous, he's been featured on the Today Show, MSNBC, Fox Business News, The Steve Harvey Show, Forbes, Oprah Magazine and much more. He sells his bow ties on Etsy for $40-$50 each. He claims Mo's Bows make you “look good and feel good.” For a kid of 12, he knows what he wants out of life: he is going to be a famous fashion designer some day.
Young Moziah is likely looking for the Sharks' help with building out an e-commerce platform and getting his product on retail shelves.
