Shark Tank Noggin Boss Update
- Entrepreneur: Gabe Cooper and Sean Starner
- Business: Large promotional hats for sports teams
- Ask: $50,000 for 25% equity
- Result: $50,000 for 30% equity
- Shark: Daymond John
Gabe Cooper and Sean Starner are proud of their oversized hats, called Noggins, which can prominently display your favorite teams and other promotional material. In four months of business, they have $30,000 in sales. They’ve even been featured in the NFL draft.
After their Season 13 pitch, the sharks were curious about the product. The low sales initially tripped them up, but Gabe and Sean explained that they couldn’t fill 95% of their orders. Most customers wanted licensed logos on their hats, but they couldn’t obtain the rights. Their biggest hurdle was licensing, and that’s why they needed a shark.
They had proof of concept and a lot of interest, but they needed help. Daymond John offered $50,000 for 30% equity. Mark Cuban added that he could get them in with the Mavericks, which he owned, if they took Daymond’s offer.
To clear the field, Lori Greiner went out. It wasn’t for her. Kevin O’Leary and Barbara Corcoran wanted to make offers, but Daymond turned up the heat. In response to the pressure, Gabe and Sean accepted Daymond’s offer.
Our Noggin Boss update research revealed that you still can’t get licensed patches for your Noggins—at least not yet. However, you can customize them using your own logo and patches from their website. We’re sure that Daymond will be able to open doors for this fun company!
