Daymond John will offer them $250,000 for 20% if you are interested in licensing the technology. Daymond goes out when they ask Robert to lower his deal.
Kevin O'Leary thinks they have tons of competition and he won't pay $3 million for their company; he is out.
Lori Greiner thinks their market is to niche, and she likes broad markets. She is out.
Robert Herjavec is not that interested in the drum pants. He is thinking of the next step. He offers $150,000 for 20% equity. Robert sees this deal as a proof of concept right now, and the future product is a big deal. They counter Robert at 15% at $150,000. Robert said he would stay where he is with his offer. Robert withdraws when they ignore him and look to Mark after Daymond. They leave without an offer.
