You Won't Believe What Mark Cuban Told This Crazy Guy on Shark Tank After He Pitched His Idea
This guy aka as George Conway of BedRyder asked the Sharks for $200,000 in exchange for 15% equity in his company. BedRyder makes safety seats for the backs of pickup trucks. To Conway's credit, he's a great salesman and he was animated and fun as he demonstrated the product on a pickup. But his answers to the investors' most important questions left them shaking their heads.
For example, when Mark Cuban asked him if it had undergone crash testing, Conway replied, "Honestly, yes! I have done my own. By accident!" The Sharks liked Conway as a person, but the myriad of things that could go wrong with the deal cause them all to back out. "When you leave the Tank, I want you to take that truck and drive it off a cliff," Mark Cuban told him.
