This year, they are expected to do $2.3 million in revenue. Getting their start through a Kickstarter campaign, they raised more than $700,000. They are looking for a shark to help them “over their inventory hurdles.”

Robert Herjavec thinks it’s a difficult problem to solve under their valuation, while Daymond John doesn’t want to get into denim fashion. John goes out.

Mark Cuban thinks there’s too high a barrier to entry and goes out as well. Lori Greiner acknowledges that the industry is difficult and that they managed to create something new, but goes out.

Herjavec is concerned by the inventory problem and goes out, as does Kevin O’Leary, who acknowledges the same problems the other sharks pointed out with the money issues.

Each week on “Shark Tank,” budding entrepreneurs have the opportunity to pitch their emerging business to six multi-millionaire and billionaire investors, known as sharks: Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks; Daymond John, fashion mogul and founder of FUBU; Kevin O’Leary, self-proclaimed Mr. Wonderful and founder of O’Leary Financial Group; Barbara Corcoran, real estate maven; Lori Greiner, queen of QVC; and Robert Herjavec, technology guru and founder/CEO of the Herjavec Group. Venture capitalist Chris Sacca is also slated to appear as a guest shark this season.

“Shark Tank,” which is based on “Dragons’ Den,” is produced by Mark Burnett and first debuted in 2009. To date, the sharks have invested more than $87 million in various companies after engaging in numerous bidding wars and shark fights. A new episode airs each Friday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
