Zuum

zuumChico Guerra and Mason Buechler hope the Sharks like Zuum, their Hover Shoes that are the “world's lightest transportation device,” in Shark Tank episode 1108. For people familiar with hover boards, the Zuum hover shoes are similar. Hover boards are a single unit while hover shoes are two separate wheels for each foot. The guys created their product in 2018 to respond to the rapid growth of “personal transportation devices.”

From electric skateboards to skooters to hover shoes, the personal transportation market is exploding. Largely urban dwellers are seeking alternatives to automobiles and public transportations for short trips around town. Zuum is the latest product to fit that need.

Chico and Mason raised $24,253 on Kickstarter in March, 2019 and another $25,470 on IndieGoGo a few months later to get their business off the ground. Their hover shoes are fast charging, light-weight, water and fire resistant and have a 1.5 hour battery life. They hold up to 220 pounds and have a maximum speed of 8 MPH. They had some glitches fulfilling orders, but they shipped most of their shoes in August, 2019.

A pair of Zuum hover shoes will set you back $350 on Amazon. As with hover boards, which were all the rage a few years ago, there are already knock-offs for sale. The guys likely want a Shark's help getting to market quickly and eliminating the knock-off products.

Zuum Shark Tank Recap

Chico and Mason will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec 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 they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Zuum will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
