Another Shark Tank Pitch

Who Is The Founder Of Da Vinci Eye?

The founder and CEO of Da Vinci Eye Company is Samuel Gherman, who is a marketing person by profession. He has worked in many companies, the main ones being MallStand, LLC and Macy’s.

Charissa Castillo is the co-founder of this company and she also belongs to a marketing background.

How Was The Shark Tank Pitch Of Da Vinci Eye?

After entering Shark Tank, Sam asked the Sharks for $350k for 5% equity and explained his AR Art Projector App to the Sharks. Sam started it as a fun project and the app completed 50,000 downloads within 5 weeks of its launch.

He didn’t make any money from 2016 to 2019, but in June 2020 he made $450,000 in revenue. In January 2021, he and his girlfriend, who is an event manager, quit their jobs and started working full-time in the company.

Sales in January 2021 were $200,000, total sales in 2021 were $890,000, sales in 2022 were $860,000 and in 2023 he switched to a subscription model. Per Year Subscription Cost of Core App AR Art Projector $19.99.

Sam was not giving direct sales numbers to the Sharks, which is why Daymond John said, “I’m out.” A projection of $1.1 million has been generated this year. Sales so far this year have been $450,000. Currently, the customer acquisition cost is $0.10-$0.21.

Mark Cuban said he is out. Lori Greiner said it was a very Confusion pitch and the founder didn’t mention the company’s rights sales, so he was out. Daniel Lubetzky said the number is too Murky so he is out. Kevin O’Leary also refused to invest in this business because he did not know how to get returns on money.

What Happened To Da Vinci Eye After Shark Tank?

Da Vinci Eye did not get the deal on Shark Tank. All the sharks refused to invest in this business. Sam had confused all the sharks with his pitch due to which the sharks could not get clarity as to what is the company’s revenue.

From Sam’s side, it was a very big blunder in which he did not get investment but after this episode of Shark Tank is on air, surely some investors will invest in this company.

Da Vinci Eye Shark Tank Update

Founder Gherman, after entering Shark Tank, explained his business model to the sharks and said how the app would help the user make perfect art drawings. He also told the Sharks about all the sales reports so far.

What Is Da Vinci Eye’s Net Worth?

Da Vinci Eye’s net worth is estimated at $2.1 million. This product follows Apple’s Vision-Pro concept. It will be very difficult to sustain this business model because many big brands can implement this transparent image art idea in their Vision Pro or XR headsets.
