How Was The Shark Tank Pitch Of Turbobaster?

After entering the Shark Tank, Marian asked the Sharks for $35k for 30% equity at a $116k Valuation. The product presentation she gave in Shark Tank was a prototype. Kevin O’Leary asked Marian about the product’s estimated retail cost and manufacturer’s cost.

Marian said the estimated retail cost of the normal product is $19.99 and the cost of the stainless model is $29.99 but Marian has no idea of the manufacturing cost of the product.

Kevin O’Leary said that Marian does not have any information about the product’s estimated manufacturing cost, sales, market size, and competitors. Because of this, he is out.

Barbara Corcoran said that she has no idea about the making cost of the product and hence she is out. Robert Herjavec said if you don’t have numbers of sales, manufacturers, etc then I am out.

Kevin Harrington said he liked the product and offered $35k with a 2% royalty for 100% equity. Marian said she would take the offer.

Meanwhile, Daymond John offered $40k with a 2% royalty for a 51% equity. After some time, Daymond increased the investment to $50k. But Marian accepted Kevin Harrington’s offer.
