What do the Shark Tank Investors say about Foot Fairy
- Mark Cuban is the last Shark to be in, and he asks what differentiates foot fairy from a world famous podiatrist. They respond their passion. He tells them if they say that one more time, he is out. So, Dr. Shapiro and Nicole come back to taking a year to get the accuracy right. Mark is afraid they will drive him batty, but he does the deal anyway with a contingency.
- Barbara Corcoran believes enthusiasm is not enough so, she is out.
- Kevin O'Leary Wants to know what they have that is proprietary; he can't see it. He is out.
- Lori Greiner is the first to go out, saying that they do not have a business yet.
- Robert Herjavec comments on their desire to hire a team of developers to build out their App. He states the Foot Fairy is duplicable; he is out.
Foot Fairy after Shark Tank
It looks like the Foot Fairy deal didn't happen, and the company failed after their Shark Tank appearance with only one comment in September of 2014. Their website is not functional.
