This portable campfire system was designed to be used for tailgating, camping, or even at home in the backyard. Let’s see if the sharks are willing to invest $50,000 for 20% equity before we jump ahead and cover the Radiate update.

Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner both dropped out early because they’d invested in a very similar company and felt that it would be a conflict of interest.

However, Barbara Corcoran decided to make an offer of $50,000 for 25% equity after hearing about the company’s margins and financial record. She did express a little bit of concern about the fact that Radiate had only been operating for less than 30 days before appearing on Shark Tank, though.

Guest shark Rohan Oza decided to make the same exact offer. Robert Herjavec offered $100,000 in exchange for 25% equity. After giving it some thought, Brent and Brian accepted Robert’s offer because of the passion that he expressed for their business.

Now that we know how the negotiations ended, let’s get a quick Radiate update to see how the company has been doing since appearing on Shark Tank.

In our Radiate update research, we found that the deal with Robert was finalized. Additionally, after airing on the show the company received a big boost in sales and got a lot of free marketing.

With the exposure from the show and Robert on the team, Brent and Bryan have been able to grow the business to an estimated $2 million a year in revenue.
