Founder Story:

Nina had the idea of the Oogiebear product line when she was taking care of her first daughter when she was a baby, who would stay awake during the night due to a blocked nose. With the help of her husband Sina Farzin, a doctor specializing in oral and nasal cavity issues,  they designed a prototype that would be small enough to enter the nasal cavity of the infant without any irritation.

They then started their company in 2015 and added other products to their company line and after doing around $ 15 million in lifetime sales, they then come to Shark Tank Live in order to secure a deal.  

Did Oogiebear get a deal on Shark Tank?

The founders enter with the crowd cheering loudly for them as they introduce themselves, asking $400,000 in exchange for a 5% stake in their company. They start off their pitch by explaining problems faced by babies and parents due to blocked noses and how they were inspired to create Oogiebear, a booger picker for babies!

Robert asks about costs to which Nina says that the item costs $2-4 to make and is sold at around $12.99 – $24.99 with the item being for 0-24-month-old infants. Amazingly, they had sold over 1 million units, resulting in nearly $ 15 million in lifetime sales, which impresses the audience and the sharks as they have also done $5.4million last year and  $4.5million this year.

Daymond goes out because he thinks he isn’t the right shark for the company and then Kevin starts off the offers with $400,000, but for 10% as he really wants to invest in the company. Lori also puts forward a partnership offer with Mark for $400,000 for a 12% stake, but Barbara brings out the big guns when she explains how she brought the sales-less Original Comfy to  $400 million in sales, and she says that if they do a deal with her and if she doesn’t take them there, she will return ½ of the company’s stock.

Robert is eager so he joins in with Barbara, and the founders ask Barbara a Robert if she can go to $600,000 for 10% with the same benefits instead, after which all the sharks are talking loudly so it’s hard to understand them, but in the end, Barbara agrees to the counter-offer from the founders, after which the crowd goes wild.
