Stealth Bros and Company

stealth brosBraxton Fleming seeks a Shark investment for Stealth Bros and Company, his company that makes luxurious dopp kits for people with the need to carry medical supplies such as injection needles. He’ll pitch his business in Shark Tank episode 1402. He started the business in his basement to provide a solution to a problem he had. Braxton is a trans gender male who needs to have weekly hormone injections, often while away from home. Apparently, the injections are working as he’s married and a father of three.

The dopp kits provide a discreet way for people to travel with their medical necessities and helps provide safe storage and disposal of used needles. Diabetics can also benefit from these products as they frequently need insulin injections. He also sells sharps disposal vessels to dispose of used needles safely. The smaller sharps disposal “shuttles” fit into the Stealth Bros dopp kits. The sharps disposal vessels can also be used for commercial use by barbers, tattoo artists etc.

The flagship products are the dopp kits. They’re made out of leather and they come in a variety of vibrant colors and patterns. They come in two sizes. The Original dopps are $32 each and the Junior dopps are $34. The kits are designed to safely and stylishly transport medical supplies, no matter what the medical need is. Braxton’s a budding philanthropist, too. He’s established a fund that will give $500 to two individuals to help them achieve gender affirming goals. He’s likely in the Tank to get Stealth Bros to the next level. Will a Shark like these kits?
