The Measuring Shovel

the measuring shovelMaddox Prichard and his mom, Amanda, seek a Shark to invest in The Measuring Shovel in Shark Tank episode 1107. Maddox invented The Measuring Shovel as an entry into the Middle Tennessee State University Invention Convention in 2016. They liked his product so much, he won first prize for his grade level (5th grade).

It also earned Maddox a trip to Washington, D.C. for the very first National Invention Convention at the United States Patent Office. Once again, Maddox earned kudos, winning the Household Organization and Tools Award, sponsored by Stanley Black & Decker.

Maddox’s middle school principle believed in the invention the first time he saw it and encouraged him to get it patented. That’s just what Maddox’s parents did, too. They filed the patent in his name. He actually created the prototype for the invention in about a half hour with a standard shovel, some duct tape, a ruler and a magic marker. To date, Maddox isn’t selling the product, in fact, he doesn’t even have a website! He likely wants a Shark to help him navigate the ups and downs of starting a business. Will a Shark dig in to this product?

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 The Measuring Shovel will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
