The TactiBite Fish Call Shark Tank Pitch
The TactiBite Fish Call is like a duck call for fish. They invested $75,000 in the development of the product that generate sounds and vibrations that attract fish. They know that their product works on fish, but they want to see if it works on Sharks.
Jeff and Jack used to be the guys that caught less fish than others, now they are the guys who catch more fish than others. They have been selling for five months and generated $330,000 selling at $99.99 and it cost $16 landed. Jack is only seventeen and has been exposed to business all his life.
Daymond John is the fisherman out of the Sharks, and it doesn't make a splash in the water, but the TactiBite Fish Call simulates the movement.
There is $500,000 worth of inventory on hand by turning inventory using their profit to fund future orders. They want a Shark to get them into retail stores.
Jack explains the valuation that they are anticipating $750,000 in sales which will net them $350,000 and they used a 5X multiple to come up with the number. The Sharks tell Jack that he has to be the smartest seventeen year old kid that they have ever met.
