There’s yet another new episode of “Shark Tank” coming up on Friday night, and given that we are going to see the return of Chris Sacca, doesn’t it make sense that we are getting two more phone apps into the Tank? He’s invested in so many that he knows a hit when he sees one.
As always, we’re going to start by sharing the synopsis below, and then we’ll get to highlighting the products:
“A developer from San Francisco, California, incites a battle between two of the billionaire Sharks, as they fight to invest in his early education software platform. A fashion blogger from Los Angeles, California, hopes to win over the Sharks with her fashion networking mobile app; a pair of entrepreneurs from New York introduces a convenient way for people to access umbrellas on a rainy day; and two business partners from Altadena, California, have designed a way for kids to enjoy eating healthier. Also, an update on Ryan Fant and Nayeem Hussain from New York and Keen Home, their line of home enhancement products that Robert Herjavec invested in during season six.”
My Fruity Faces – They are edible stickers! This is the sort of thing that does work well in the Tank. They’re easily affordable, appeal to all audiences, and are certainly the sort of thing that you can buy time and time again. While the name is a little hard to directly associate with stickers, there’s a good chance that this company will get a deal.
FashionTap – It’s a fashion app … that highlights fashion. It’s a pretty simple concept to understand, but how do you make this stand out from all of the other apps that are out there? Maybe we have not seen this precise functionality before, but we have seen plenty of similar concepts.
BrellaBox – Anyone want to rent an umbrella? That’s apparently the idea of this company, that allows you to take one when you need it, only to return it later. This is the case of a product having a good name, but we don’t really see the functionality working well here. It feels like these sort of installations that you put into buildings aren’t big winners in the tank often, and to go along with that, isn’t it pretty cheap to go and buy an umbrella?
BrightWheel – This is an app that gives more control to teachers and parents, establishes better communication, and can also be an asset to educators on the job. It has a lot of ways to update and share content, and it’s clear that the focus is on the right stuff here. Yet, the main issue is simply that we don’t know how much time teachers have in the day for using this when they’re so overworked already.
