Return Home Shark Tank Update (Season 15)

Return Home is a human composting company that is a green alternative to burial and cremation. This company transforms the human body into Soil using alfalfa, straw, sawdust, and time.

Families can use that soil for memory gardens of their loved ones. This whole thing is called Terramation and it is legal until October 2023 in some states like Washington, California, Oregon, Colorado, and Vermont.

They provide two services: immediate and Pre-planning. The cost of both these plans is $4,950 for each member.

Another Shark Tank Pitch

Who Is The Founder Of Return Home?

Micah Truman is the co-founder and CEO of Return Home Company. He started the business in early 2019 but started executing the business in 2021. Truman worked in China for many years after completing his studies.

How Was The Shark Tank Pitch Of Return Home?

After entering Shark Tank, Micha and Katey asked the sharks for $2m for 5% equity at a $40m valuation. They explained to the Sharks their company’s business model of how they can transform human bodies into “soils” through Terramation.

They had made $350,000 in sales in 2021 and by May 2023 they have crossed $350,000. The shocking thing is that right now they are losing money. They have raised a total of $5 million by 2023. Their last valuation was $20.6 million in 2022.

Mark Cuban was out immediately. Lori Greiner said you have not archived any valuable numbers but you have asked for $2 million for 5% equity.

Every month they transform 70 bodies and they charge $3,800. The transformation cost of one body is $1,200. Daniel Lubetzky said it doesn’t even make valuations sense so he’s out.

Daymond John said that he is passionate about the whole business but not about this so he is out of it.

Return Home Shark Tank Update

Return Home did not get funding on Shark Tank. Looking at this business model and the investment demand, we do not think that Micha came with the expectation of getting funding.

Hearing the valuation of the business, all the sharks were out. Despite raising $5 million in funding, this business has not yet made a profit.

There is another company like Return Home in Washington which is currently running. Some social media users say that they did not come for sharks, they came on TV to do free advertisement.

After the episode of Return Home to Shark was aired, many users shared their opinions on this business. Some people say that this is a fantastic business idea and some say that the founder came to Shark Tank for free advertisement.

What Is Return Home Net Worth?

Return Home’s net worth is estimated at $1 million. Many such startups have been formed in the world that transform the human body into a tree or Soil after death. There are still many states and countries where human composting is illegal.
