wisepocket13 year old Sofia Overton wants the Sharks to invest in WisePocket, her socks with pockets, in Shark Tank episode 1112. The idea came to her when she saw her cousin put her phone in her boot – her pants had no pockets. When Sofia tried the same thing, her phone slipped down into her boot – it didn't work. She decided to make socks with pockets for those times when you need an extra pocket.

Sofia also has a social conscience. She claims there are over 600 kids in her school district that are classified as homeless, so she donates a pair of socks to homeless shelters for each pair she sells. Soon she'll branch into leggings with pockets too. There were plenty of people who helped Sofia get WisePocket going: her parents, her patent attornet, her local Chamber of Commerce and the folks at Start-Up Junkie.

Sofia got her first orders with a successful IndieGoGo campaign that raised $10,006 in early 2018. The first socks were shipped that fall. They come in white, black and “splatter paint.” Each pair costs $15. As of Christmas, 2018, she's shipped socks to 25 homeless children's shelters across the USA. Sofia needs a Shark to help her with growing WisePocket into a “real” business. Will a Shark fill her pockets with cash?

Sofia will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. She'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John and Barbara Corcoran that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on WisePocket will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
