Shark Tank's success stories
The story of Scrub Daddy is quite serendipitous, as this product's discovery was almost entirely accidental, and has made over $209 million in sales since. Aaron Krause was running an international manufacturing company and was inspired to find a more efficient way to keep his hands clean after working on machinery. Trial and error led him to create a highly engineered polymer foam. He patented the sponge and its shape, which looks like a round smiley face, years before discovering his foam's secret: it hardens in cold water and softens in warm water. On the 25th of October, 2012, his winning idea convinced Lori Greiner to invest $200,000 for a 25% stake.
The Tipsy Elves made their Shark Tank debut on the 13th of December 2013. It started as a Christmas Sweater Company that was determined to make the most outrageous clothing imaginable. Evan Mendelsohn and Nick Morton worked very hard on their sales pitch to stand out and be memorable. They must have done something right because Robert Herjavec invested $100k for 10% of the company. Today, not only do they make sweaters sold worldwide, but their range has expanded to swimwear, dresses, accessories, and much more. According to Investopedia.com, Tipsy Elves has earned over $125 million (as of 2020).
