Eben Dobson hopes to clean up with the Wisp, his revolutionary broom/dustpan combo, in Shark Tank episode 1006. The dustpan is designed to sit flat on the floor and is held in place by your foot to keep it from moving. The broom has electrostatic bristles that trap dust and pet hair while still sweeping up the big stuff. There's even a built-in cleaning com in the dustpan to get the hair and dust off the broom.
The Wisp also has a telescoping handle which extends over four feet so you can get to out of the way places. Wisp's design allows for maneuverability in tight spaces, too. The 90 degree bristles on the broom assure a “clean sweep” every time.
Dobson is no stranger to inventing. He's an avid golfer and his first invention, approved by the USGA, was a special bristle brush for cleaning debris off the golf green. He created the Wisp in 2012 and used the same type of bristles from his golf green brush. It's a true evolutionary step for the broom and dustpan, so much so it's an Amazon best seller! Dobson hopes to sweep into the Shark Tank and get a Shark to invest.
Will a Shark get a handle on this hugely profitable product?

Wisp Shark Tank Recap
Eben will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran and Guest Shark Sara Blakely that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards." A full pitch re-cap on Wisp will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
