Drop Stop Shark Tank Pitch
The Drop Stop is the answer to the Carmuda Triangle, the place that is between your console and your car seat. no more dropping keys or other important items in between your seat and console because that space becomes filled.
Avoid car accidents, because items won't go into the black hole in between your car seats. The Drop Stop sold more than $1.3 million since inception coming into their Shark Tank pitch.
They have over $750,000 investment from friends and family before having Lori come into the company. The pair had movie business aspirations and are accidental entrepreneurs/inventors.

Drop Stop after Shark Tank
Mark Newburger and Jeffrey Simon are successful with over $24 million in sales, but they still live a humble lifestyle and are paying out the original investors with deals that they made. To them, this is a lifestyle play, but the Drop Stop is big business! And, Mark Newberger is still sleeping on Jeffrey Simon's couch!
