They also emphasized their research-driven approach, donating a portion of the proceeds to Alzheimer’s research.

Mosh’s pitch highlighted the business’ focus on understanding how Alzheimer’s disproportionately affects women, revealing that two-thirds of women suffer from this disease compared to men.

Mr. Wonderful questioned the $25 million valuation. Patrick explained that Mosh had done $10 million in online sales over the past two years, with projections of $7 million in the year of filming and $11.5 million the following year.

The cost per bar is $0.93, and it retails for $2.99 online and $3.39 on shelves.

When Lori asked about profitability, Patrick explained their current losses due to a $100,000 monthly marketing expenditure. 

He revealed $675,000 in sales last month, with $150,000 spent on marketing, and boasted over 11,000 monthly subscriptions.

The company has 5 full-time employees, with the founders forgoing salaries. Maria and Patrick invested over $1 million of their own money, secured $1.5 million from friends and family, and raised $4 million from other investors earlier this year.

Kevin O’Leary passed on the deal, skeptical of the $25 million valuation and the retail strategy.

Mark Cuban thought they were entering one of the most competitive industries with a protein bar and dropped out because of this.

Daymond John passed on the investment because he believed it would take too long to see a return.

Guest shark Candace Nelson, sharing Mark Cuban’s competitive niche worries, also dropped out.

Lori Greiner, the last shark, shared the concerns but remained interested. She offered $500,000 for 6% equity. After some negotiations, both parties agreed to a final deal of $500,000 for a 3.5% stake with a 1.5% advisory share.
