Shark Tank Hoppy Paws Update
- Entrepreneurs: Trina Barkouras
- Business: Holiday floor stamps
- Ask: $50,000 for 10% equity
- Result: $100,000 for 49% equity
- Sharks: Barbara Corcoran
Trina entered the tank with a full display of her Hoppy Prints stamping kits. As she passed out samples to the sharks, she explained that her food grade stamping powder could easily be removed from any surface. Targeting just about every season, this fun, novelty item helped parents make the holidays more exciting for their kids.
Without scaling the production, Trina told the sharks that it costs her $2.00 to make a single kit of holiday stamps, and she plans on selling them for $7.99. Her goal would be to expand and sell her product in a variety of retail stores like Walgreens, but for now, she was just starting out. Robert Herjavec told Trina that he was impressed with her but didn’t think his kids would be interested in the product, so he went out.
Kevin O’Leary and the other sharks joked that they would pitch in $5,000 each but Barbara Corcoran decided to make her a real deal. She offered $100,000 for 50% equity, but Trina wanted to remain a majority shareholder, so she counter-offered Barbara for 49%. Trina agreed, walking away with a deal!
