PartiePoche entrepreneurs Connor Pastoor & Jillian Jaccard pitched the Sharks on their cell phone holder that fits on your leg in episode 409. They claimed the PartiePoche has a patent pending. PartiePoch (pronounced Party Posh) is designed to be a stylish replacement for a purse or handbag for ladies who want to wear a dress but still tote “the essentials” around: cell phone, credit cards, cash. The company is pre-revenue, so Connor claims they can't accurately value it.
Connor and Jillian are asking $100k for a 20% share of PartiePoche. Another investor already owns 40% of the company, which was purchased for $50K. In what may be remembered as one of the biggest Train Wrecks in season four, the Sharks grill the young MBA's. Kevin thinks their valuation is so far out of line, he forbids the other Sharks from making any offers! Robert doesn't like the fact that there are no sales, so he's out too. Barbara likes their enthusiasm, but thinks it will be the thing that sinks them; she goes out. Daymond follows. Mark likes the PartiePoche MBA's and the product, but he doesn't like that they have no clear direction; he's out.
