BusyBox in the Shark Tank
|Shark Tank Air Date
|Season 13 Episode 19
|Steve Skillings and Conor Smith
|$200,000 for 15% equity
Entrepreneurs Steve Skillings and Conor Smith presented BusyBox on Shark Tank, seeking a $200,000 investment in exchange for a 15% equity stake. Their $1.3M valuation was met with swift resistance from the Sharks. Mark Cuban promptly opted out, setting the tone for subsequent decisions.
Lori Greiner followed suit, citing concerns about the product’s pricing strategy, deeming it unaffordable for the average consumer.
Robert Herjavec, in a calculated move, withdrew his interest, expressing reservations about BusyBox’s transition into the wellness sector and his belief that the product might be riding a fleeting trend.
Kevin O’Leary and Daymond John concurred in their assessment that the price point was prohibitively high for the everyday consumer. Their decision to exit negotiations underscored the misalignment between the entrepreneurs’ valuation and market realities.
Regrettably, the entrepreneurs departed the Shark Tank without securing a deal. This episode illuminated the formidable challenges of aligning valuations with market dynamics.
