Shark Tank AIRA Update

Aira update

  • Entrepreneurs: Jake Slatnick and Eric Goodchild
  • Business: Free position wireless charging surface
  • Ask: $500,000 for 7% equity
  • Result: $500,000 for 15% equity
  • Shark: Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, and Robert Herjavec

Jake and Eric brought their wireless charging device and company, AIRA, to Shark Tank Season 11 Episode 3. Wireless charging is a new and exciting technology, however, it is limited.

Eric is actually one of the world’s premier experts on Tesla coils and he also holds a Guinness World record for one of the most powerful Tesla coils ever built.

He brought it to Shark Tank for a demonstration and Jake and Eric wowed the sharks with their demonstration. They showed how they can charge three phones at once.

Their openness to licensing is also impressive. With Eric’s expertise, he came up with a more free-form charging surface, since many similar products must have the device placed directly over a sensor to work.

Instead of being right on target with your device, the AIRA charging surface can hold multiple devices in any configuration and charge them all!

Robert Herjavec cannot believe that Eric built the Tesla coil that they brought to the set. Eric goes on to say that he actually built it in high school.

Lori Greiner especially loves the fact that any company can license and brand the product. Jake and Eric also share that the charging pad can be made in any size to accommodate various size wireless devices.

The unit is proprietary, too, which the sharks also love. As they say, they’ll make more money selling the tech to other companies.

In addition, AIRA recently took on its first bulk licensing order for 33,000 units, which is good news for potential investors.

Despite this, Mark Cuban drops out, because he thinks the company could get left behind since the tech market changes so quickly. Daymond John goes out for the same reason.

The other three sharks thought differently.

Robert offers $500,000 for 10% equity.

Kevin O’Leary and Lori go in together on $500,000 as a loan, at 9% interest, and 15% equity, although they quickly drop the loan aspect of the deal when Robert tells Jake and Eric they don’t need credit.

Jake and Eric were great negotiators. They offered all three sharks a deal of $500,000 for 15% equity.

Consequently, the sharks accepted. Keep reading our AIRA update to see how the company faired after Shark Tank!
