I'd get rid of both Kevin and Robert. They're both Canadian imports from "Dragon's Den."
wait...do I have them confused? Kevin is the one who sits on the end, right?
Robert = Mr. Wonderfull? Or do I have that backwards?
I meant get rid of the guy on the end. I love Mr. Wonderfull
You have them confused. Kevin = Mr. Wonderful.
Kevin is Mr Wonderful. Robert is on the far end.
Yeah, Robert is very logical but never invests.
I don't understand the wedding dress thing. Women are all kinds of different sizes. When you tailor a dress you can't always save all of the material for re-use. So do they only sell certain dress sizes? I have friends who bought second-hand dresses but they are all tiny humans.
Looks like the NBA signed a licensing deal with those "energy bracelets" that were once on Shark Tank. Here's what Mark Cuban thinks of them:

I totally agree. And I applaud Cuban for putting his money where his mouth is, but literally and figuratively.
My comment isn't about wanting to strangle someone, I'm just amazed how big of a meme this has become.. "Netflix for …"
While obviously they were the one that became big at it, there had to be SOMETHING doing this sort of thing before Netflix, right? (Sharing books or something?)
Oh, and the tie company WAS ON Who Wants to be a Millionaire as a question a few days after this. So apparently they're already well known?!?!?
I'm pretty sure Netflix was the first online company to offer a "keep it as long as you like" and a "x out per month" type of plan. Everyone else was on a time-rental basis.
Think of them as the analog of the bad singers in the early rounds of American Idol.
(Though I did think one recent Shark Tank episode where it was ALL, or all but one, really bad ideas that got slammed by the tank was bad editing.. shouldn't've been all grouped together on one episode.)
Isn't "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" syndicated through ABC affiliates?
Sounds like self-promotion for ABC on this one.
Did the question start out as, "As seen on Shark Tank..."?
do you think there's ever a deal made and we dont get to see it on the show or 100% of all deals made go on the show?
I think what happens more often then not is the deals made on the show don't go through. The sharks do due diligence before they sign the final contract and can always pull out. In an interview the Sharks also said that some of the company owners have decided that the exposure on the Shark Tank was enough and pull out of the deals as well. I haven't heard of any where there wasn't a deal made on the show but a deal was worked out later but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened. I do know that there have been a few companies who have been on the show more than once.
i love the guys that come in and say i'm an inventor, i have ABC but now i have XYZ and i need money for that
then they dig and find out the dude is a zillionair with ABC but doesnt want the risk with XYZ (NO you cant have that part of the business)
Yeah...we've seen that a few times on the show.
The old ladies with the natural gum were like that.
one thing people should learn is patent = kevin
he loves to license things too
but people dont want their original ideas destroyed and i guess i cant blame them for wanting to save their baby
Which makes sense for the people who have dedicated themselves to their idea....but doesn't make any sense for the people who are just doing their thing on the side, which the Sharks do call them out on. If you want to keep your current job, then just take a licensing or royalty deal, get your money and move on.
i forget the object but kev wanted zero equity..just X cents or dollars per item
i'm assuming you do something like that because you limit your risk to your initial investment? after that it's only upside once you get past the breakeven point
and if the company goes down, no equity means no 'loss' in that sense of the word
but then he also does some deals where he says i get X cents per unit only until i make my money but then i think he has to have equity for those, correct?
