What do the Shark Tank Investors say about Buffer Bit
Mark Cuban likes the product, but once again, this is not a business. There is no structure, and he doesn't see a clear path to getting a return on his investment, so he is out.
Daymond John doesn't see the application, so he is out.
Kevin O'Leary is a member of a secret society of Burban drinkers. They have a Tastevin that has to be polished to get in. Kevin thinks he could shine his Tastevin. He is a buyer, but as an investor, he is out.
Lori Greiner doesn't know enough about how many men shine their shoes. People are going more casual, so she is out.
Robert Herjavec says Kevin O'Leary is full of crap. No matter how successful you get, it is always the little things that count, until you become as wealthy as Mr. Cuban, then you can be a slob. I don't know at this point if you have developed the market enough, I am out.
