Founder Story:

Ever since he was a kid, the founder of Mo’s Bows Moziah bridges, or Mo as he likes to be called, loved to dress sharp, no matter what he was doing or where he was.

Later, he saw that he couldn’t seem to find a type of tie that he liked, so his grandmother taught him to sew for himself and this is how he got the idea to share his fashion sense with others, and do what he liked and figure out how to make money from it and decided to create his own company, Mo’s Bows.

Did Mo’s Bows get a deal on Shark Tank?

In Shark Tank, the founder Moziah Bridges walks up to the sharks with his mother Tramica Morris and they both introduce themselves and put forward their ask of $50,000 for 20% of their company, Mo’s Bows. Mo then goes on to talk to the judges about how he loved to dress well even when he was younger and how he got the idea of creating his own company and selling his handmade bow-ties after his grandmother taught him how to sow for himself.

They then give some sample bow-ties to the sharks to see their quality, which the sharks really liked. Mo then says that he has sold around 2000 bows in the last 2 years resulting in around $50,000 in sales, as it costs around $6 to $10 to manufacture a bow tie which goes for $45 to $60 in the market. He also says that he is sure that he is TNBT (the next big thing), which the sharks love, and that he is sure to reach a wider audience due to their company having good exposure and him having also appeared in the Oprah Magazine, which impresses the sharks.

The sharks then ask what they will use for the $50,000 they are asking for and Tramica says that they will use it to secure a manufacturer in order to meet the needs of the demand, but the sharks say that then the product will no longer be handmade, which they consider is the unique selling point of the product. They also say that Mo and Tramica do not need a deal as they should grow their company steadily by ensuring good margins and publicity and then move from specialty boutiques and go on to partner with major fashion outlets, for which the sharks don’t seem to be the right fit for so Mark, Robert, and Barbara are out.

Kevin O’Leary wants to make a royalty deal for $50,000 $3 for every tie sold, but Daymond John reminds them of how he is glad he hadn’t sold his company to an investor, which is now worth over $40 million and tells Mo and Tramica not to take up investors at this time as he is instead willing to mentor them, even without a stake in the company, so then Tramica says that they will decline Kevin’s offer in order to receive mentorship from Daymond, which is more valuable for them in order to take their company to the next level.

What happened to Mo’s Bows after Shark Tank?

After their appearance in shark tank, Daymond John mentored Moziah and helped the latter expand his company further and has now also done over $100, 000 in sales.

Daymond also went on to help Mo’s Bows to meet two other big tie-making companies. Robert Stewart and Neiman Marcus tested some of their products in their own stores and if they do well, it will surely help Mo’s bows in massive proportions. The company is also featured in the shark tank update in episode 6 of season 12 in which Daymond applauds Moziah for bringing about the massive growth of his company and achieving success at such a young age. Moziah also went on to sign a 7 figure, 1 year deal with the NBA, in 2017.
