Shark Tank Bala Bangles Update

Bala Bangles update

  • Entrepreneurs: Natalie Holloway and Max Kislevitz

  • Shark: Mark Cuban and Maria Sharapova

Co-founder of Bala Bangles and yoga instructor Natalie Holloway wanted wrist and ankle weights, but didn’t want to holding anything during her poses. With this in mind, she and her husband Max Kislevitz decided to bring back popular weights from the 80s, but with a twist.

Their pitch starts with a live aerobics display, which is a fun way to start discussing the product. Plus, the sharks love the samples.

Outside of that, the pitch is pretty no-nonsense, and the sharks get right down to the numbers.

Natalie eventually reveals that in their first six months, they did $260,000 in sales. Additionally, in the year the segment was filmed, they’d already done $1.2 million and also had POs with Bloomingdales and Nordstrom’s.

Further, most of their sales came from these deals. Despite the good sales numbers, their problem, as they say, is actually inventory.

Guest shark Maria Sharapova is the first to step forward, saying that she’s very interested in the product. The entrepreneurs say they’d love to have her as a spokesperson, although, Maria counters that she’d need a lot more equity to do it.

Kevin O’Leary is actually the first to make an offer, though. He will give them $400,000 as a 36-month loan at 7.5% interest in exchange for 5% equity.

Before the entrepreneurs can give him an answer, Maria interrupts to offer $200,000 for 15%. She says the product is something she would use, and it’s right in her wheelhouse.

Daymond John and Lori Greiner also make offers, each for $200,000 for 15% equity in the company. This bidding war continues for a bit until the entrepreneurs state that they aren’t ready to give away too much equity in their business.

They would take on two sharks at $450,000 apiece for 30% equity, but this is the highest they’d do. Lori makes a final bid of $500,000 for 18% of the business with no partner, but Mark Cuban quickly interrupts.

He and Maria want to go in for what the entrepreneurs asked for: $900,000 at 30% for two sharks. The entrepreneurs are quick to accept.
