The founder and CEO of Soy Yer Dough Company is Sawyer Sparks. Sparks started this company in February 2008 during his first years at Purdue University.

How Was The Shark Tank Pitch of Soy Yer Dough?

Sawyer Sparks asked the Sharks for $125k for 25% equity of his company. He said that he makes modeling clay in his mother’s kitchen with his mother and girlfriend. Since February 2008, 8,000 containers have been sold and last week there was an order for 11,000 containers.

He has a provisional patent for the product and the toy company Hasbro has contacted him multiple times and has even offered $500k to buy the Soy Yer Dough patent. Kevin O’Leary offered $125k for 51% equity. Daymond John said that if Kevin’s offer is good then he is out.

Robert Harrington said Kevin is a good partner in licensing, so he is out. Barbara Corcoran also walked out after repeating what other sharks said.

Sparks counters Kevin with $125k for 40% equity. Kevin declined but Robert Herjavec offered $125k for 40% equity. Sparks said if he diluted 51% he would need more money. Daymond, Kevin & Robert Herjavec teamed up to offer $300k for 51% equity.

Sparks agreed to this offer.
