The Shark Tank returns in 2019 with episode 1008, the first new show of the new year. Four new entrepreneurs seek an investment from one of the wealthy panelists to grow their businesses. It's a Kickstarter special with three of four businesses touting successful Kickstarter campaigns.
Tammy Rant raised over $124,000 for TushBaby, her ergonomically correct baby carrier that's pediatrician and chiropractor approved. High school student and self professed coffee snob Max Feber pitches Bruw, his Kickstarter product that easily filters cold-brewed coffee. Paul Toback and Steve Lenz want a Shark to spring for Sproing Fitness, their high intensity workout studios that feature air cushioned treadmills. Successful Kickstarters Alyssa and Zachary Brown want a Shark to step up and invest in Moki Doorstep, their patented step that lets you get up on the roof of your car.
Which business gets a deal tonight?
Back in season five, Mark and Lori invested $500,000 in return for 15% equity in Cycloramic, a unique, hands-free panoramic smart phone photo app. Entrepreneur Bruno Francois created a panoramic selfie app after appearing on the show and both apps are available today. We'll chart his five-year journey with the two Sharks in tonight's update segment.
