Jake and Joe headed to
At the time of their pitch, Jake and Joe had sold around $2.2 million worth of Rocketbooks in a relatively short amount of time. This, along with the fact that Rocketbook actually worked, amazed the sharks.
But, Kevin O’Leary had doubts. He thought that Jake and Joe should try and sell more than one book and that an iPad could do the same thing. Barbara Corcoran believed that Rocketbook was a gimmick and she went out, followed by Robert Herjavec. After the two sharks went out, Kevin followed. He called the product “crazy.”
With only two sharks left, Jake and Joe still had a chance. Lori Greiner liked how Rocketbook reinvented the notebook. Unfortunately, she thought there were too many steps involved and dropped out, followed by Mark Cuban.
As for our Rocketbook update, we’ve got great news for you. The company is doing exceptionally well, and despite not landing a deal on
Rocketbook is now one of the most highly recommended notebook alternatives for those looking to take notes digitally.
