This episode starts off with a strong pitch from Sara Rose, the co-founder of healthcare startup Tribecan, who showcases her long history within her niche, her business expertise and her willingness to negotiate. This last aspect is particularly noticeable for the judges when Rose asks for a $75,000 investment without specifying her company’s valuation. 

This episode begins with an entrepreneur named Ron Tonini of Sports Engager, who’s seeking to create a new twist on old sports-player cards. Rather than utilizing printed cards of famous baseball, football or hockey players, this startup wants to create digital cards for parents, detailing their children’s stats in real time. Tonini’s concise and practiced pitch, combined with his company’s revenue-making partnerships with big names like the New England Patriots and Anaheim Ducks, draws the investors’ attention right away. Just as important is Tonini’s presence — judge Peter Goldberg says Tonini is a “serious-looking guy with a serious ask,” while Thom Beers says his “tie is worth more than my outfit.”

However, the pitch ends with a huge ask: $2 million at a $6 million valuation. Can Tonini do enough to convince the investors he’s worth such a hefty price tag?

After, husband-and-wife team Bill and Sonia Massey of The Restroom Kit show off their portable product made for those who need to use a restroom away from 网盟彩票官网, particularly in public where the bathrooms can be especially unsanitary. Their engaging and entertaining pitch makes the judges laugh. Will it make them open the elevator doors?
