NerdiT Now

nerdit nowJonathan Hoxter, Markevis Gideon and Jake Voorhees want a Sharks help to expand NerdiT Now, their mobile computer and electronic device repair business, in Shark Tank episode 1103. NerdiT Now is Gideon’s brainchild. He’s been entrepreneurial since he was a young kid with shoveling snow and selling candy in his neighborhood. He also loved taking computers apart to see how they work as a teenager.

Gideon carried his love for tech to his high school and college years. He went to Widener University in Delaware where he double majored in accounting and computer science. To supplement his income during college, he repaired computers, sold textbooks online and he even dabbled in used car sales. After graduating he lived abroad in China where he actually owned a bar.

Upon his return to the states, he started NerdiT Now in 2015. He repaired computers, phones and tablets and within a year, he felt he needed a storefront. He also needed help, so he enlisted fellow Widener alums Voorhees and Hoxter to come into the business with him. They won a $9000 grant from the University of Delaware and things really took off. They decided to buy an old ambulance and convert it to a mobile repair lab.

With their retail store, where they also buy and sell old electronics, their mobile unit and a kiosk, customers can drop off their broken electronics for repair after agreeing on a price. They either pick up at the kiosk and repair it in the NerdiT Now mobile or bring it back to the store for repair. Gideon wants to open more kiosks in the Wilmington, Delaware area and expand to Baltimore and Philadelphia. He likely needs a Shark’s capital to fuel that expansion.

NerdiT Now Shark Tank Recap

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 NerdiT Now will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
