Shark Tank Appearance 

Even though they had only produced and distributed 500 units at the time, the pair tried to find an investor by appearing on Shark Tank in 2015.

Although they knew they required advice from a professional to run their firm successfully, they didn’t want to give more than 25% of the company. The experience was difficult, especially given that they claimed the company was worth $4 million without providing a lot of supporting evidence. They were questioned on this and their margins of profitability.

The Yassas offered to pitch their baby shower highchair, in exchange for $200,000 and 5% of the company. However, the only Shark that encouraged the product was John McGrath. However, he proposed the Yassas a $200,000 investment to match the cash they had previously put into the product, which includes $100,000 for fifty percent of the ownership and a further $100,000 credit, in place of the 5% share. The couple understood the deal and without any hesitation, they accepted it.

Since Shark Tank, the couple have expanded their business to a fortune of $10 Million and their products are popular all over the world. The only remedy to a problem is to find its need and how it will benefit society.
