1. A new and improved child carrier for long day trips.
2. Made from lightweight materials, and ergonomically designed for comfort.
3. Features a sturdy, 5-point safety harness strap to keep your child safe.
These two firemen from Austin have the beginnings of the next great child-carrier. It's not quiiiiiiite there yet, but it's a start.
That said, they had a great pitch - they knew their numbers, they didn't get flustered, and they had answers to all the Sharks' objections.
And there were a lot of objections and negatives. From marketing, to manufacturing, there were just too many issues for any of the Sharks to take these guys with them on their backs.
Except Robert. After demo-ing the product, he felt that, despite the negatives, this could be a good journey to go on, so he offered them their money for a full 33% partnership.
