” You can walk in here with poo poo on a stick, sing a song, and get $50,000 from Barbara. “– Kevin O’Leary, Shark Tank
Over 12 Seasons of Shark Tank, the Sharks have invested in dozens of companies. Some have grown into massive successes that continue to reap rewards for both the entrepreneurs and the Sharks, while others struggle to keep pace. Here are each of the Shark’s Best Shark Tank Deals.
Robert Herjavec’s Best Shark Tank Deal
|Sales and Net Worth||$100+ million |
|Total Funding||$88.1 million |
Shocked by the prices and layers of middlemen he saw while flower shopping for his wedding, Robert Herjavec called up The Bouqs founder, John Tabis for help.
Though initially rejected by the Sharks, Tabis took the call. With The Bouqs’ affordable, freshly cut, farm-to-table flowers delivered on his special day, Robert’s wedding was saved, and the rest is history.
Kevin O’Leary’s Best Shark Tank Deal
|Company||Plated: Meal Kit Delivery|
|Sales and Net Worth||Sold for $300 million |
|Total Funding||$56.4 million |
From the brink of bankruptcy to securing a deal on Shark Tank, few companies have experienced the highs and lows of growing a startup the way Plated has. After their deal with Mark Cuban fell through, Plated was later joined by Kevin O’Leary whose shrewd negotiation skills landed them one of the Shark Tank’s best acquisition deals. In 2017, the company was sold to Albertsons for $300 million.
Daymond John’s Best Shark Tank Deal
|Sales and Net Worth||$250+ million in sales|
|Total Funding||$150+ million |
It was Daymond John’s soft spot for socially-driven companies that compelled him to invest in Bombas, the sock company that continues to warm the feet of many homeless through its mission-driven, buy one give one business model.
Interest continues to grow for the innovative, direct to consumer sock brand which recently raised $150 million in venture funding.
Barbara Corcoran’s Best Shark Tank Deal
|Company||The Comfy: Hoodie Blanket|
|Sales||$250 million in sales |
|Total Funding||$50,000 |
When the Comfy guys walked into the Tank, they had no inventory and they didn’t know their numbers, but according to Barbara Corcoran, there was just “something about those guys”.
With a $50,000 investment from Barbara, the Comfy has quickly grown to over $250+ million in sales and has risen the ranks of Shark Tank’s Most Successful Products.
