Shark Tank Candi Update

Shark Tank Candi Update

  • Entrepreneurs: Keithan and Quiante Hendrick
  • Business: Personal celebrity video chats
  • Ask: $500,000 for 15% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Shark: None

Entrepreneurs and partners Keithan and Quiante Hendrick rolled out the red carpet for their Shark Tank Season 13 pitch. Their company, Candi, is a social media platform that connects users to their favorite celebrities.

Candi provides a unique opportunity to meet personally with your favorite celebrity for five minutes. Each star sets their own rate, and Candi keeps 25% of the profits.

It’s an engaging way for fans to have an actual conversation with influencers, celebrity chefs, musical artists, and more.

Keithan and Quiante started their business with no connections or experience in Hollywood. Even so, they managed to get celebrities and influencers signed up to use the platform within the first week.

After Candi launched in 2020, they made $100,000 in total sales. Since then, they have hustled to create a lucrative platform.

Going into more detail about the business, the entrepreneurs say they want to use the $500,000 investment to develop an app and increase marketing.

They feel like creating a mobile app will allow their business to grow rapidly, as using apps has become increasingly popular over the past few years.

Kevin Hart is obviously concerned about the talent aspect. He says things like this have existed before, and that they can’t solely rely on celebrity personalities to market the business.

Mark Cuban, on the other hand, doesn’t think it is an investable business.

After expressing his concerns, Kevin Hart says it’s too early for him and as such, he goes out.

Mark follows next because the valuation is a problem for him.

Kevin O’Leary has no desire to give up $500,000 for an unproven model. Therefore, he’s out, too.

Lastly, Barbara Corcoran and Lori Greiner both state that the entrepreneurs are asking far too much. So, both go out.

Unfortunately, with no sharks left Keithan and Quiante Hendrick walk away without a deal.

Was Candi able to find a sweet spot after its Shark Tank appearance? Find out below in our Candi update.

Despite not securing a deal in the tank, our Candi update found that the company is doing pretty well. They’ve expanded the varieties of celebrities, as well, with categories to fit every fandom. In addition to actors and musicians, there are entrepreneurs, athletes, chefs, models, and more.

On the Candi website, you can find a long list of celebrities to connect with, including Mya, Sisqo, Chaka Khan, Tori Spelling, Andre Reed, and Chris Kattan.

Prices start and around $25 and go into the hundreds.

While the current number of users or updated revenue is not yet available, it looks like Candi is working hard to fulfill fan dreams.

Additionally, Keithan and Quiante Hendrick are leaning into their entrepreneurial identities. Keithan is offering consulting services for businesses, and Quiante is the host of the podcast Go Best Friend.

We’re sure that the buzz from the Shark Tank appearance will open the doors for more celebrities to join and that our next Candi update will have even better news.
