His solution, mcSquares, includes a line of ‘collaborative dry-erase products’ to replace your paper squares. This genius idea interested the sharks, but how will the deal go down during Season 11?

Shark Tank mcSquares Update
- Entrepreneur: Anthony Franco
- Business: Modular dry-erase products to replace sticky notes
- Ask: $300,000 for 10% equity
- Result: $300,000 for 25% equity
- Shark: Kevin O’Leary
mcSquares’ layering tablets, adhesive dry-erase squares, and other collaborative products help with contribution and teamwork in the office environment. In the last year, mcSquares had $213,000 in sales. However, the sharks were worried about Anthony’s lack of organization.
Before Anthony could get into his business model, Mark Cuban went out. He couldn’t invest since he had a similar company in his portfolio. Lori Greiner followed as she wasn’t passionate about the product.
Guest shark Rohan Oza, on the other hand, didn’t understand the product and went out as a result. Barbara Corcoran dropped out as well, stating that she loved her sticky notes too much.
This left Kevin O’Leary, he was concerned with scaling but offered $300,000 for 25%. Anthony attempted to counter at 20% equity, but Kevin refused. Anthony accepted his deal anyway. Find out how the company is doing today in our
