What is Pavlok?

Pavlok is a company that produces wearable devices designed to help people change their habits through behavioral conditioning. Pavlok appeared on Shark Tank in 2016 and received a $1 million investment from Kevin O’Leary, also known as “Mr. Wonderful”.

Founder Story:

Maneesh Sethi exactly took this concept as he would get distracted often with other tasks like watching social media etc. He even employed a person to slap him if he opened it, which helped Maneesh to stay on the course of his main activity. Such negative reinforcements improved his productivity and led to the birth of Pavlok.

Maneesh invented Pavlok, a shock clock that is a wearable wristband that you can use to break bad habits. The method is shocking too… Literally. This wristband sends an electric snap to help stay on the right course whenever there is a distraction to form good habits that you want to continue and avoid others.

How was the Pavlok Shark Tank Pitch?

Maneesh Sethi pitches for $500,000 at a 3.4 % stake in the business. He demonstrates the product which allows people to reduce their bad habits with stimuli options like vibrate, music, and the electric snap, which allows users to become mindful from autopilot mode to awareness mode.

Kevin proposes a $500,00 debt for a 3.14% stake which can be repaid back within 24 months at a 7.5% interest rate. Maneesh rejects this offer and expects other sharks to show interest except for Kevin.

This “except” message turns into an ugly spat leading to Kevin and the other sharks declining the offer. Maneesh had to walk off without a deal in the shark tank after this shocking incident.

Maneesh’s shark tank episode did not end as expected but taught him life lessons that were more important for his business life. The deal did not happen but the exposure to this event was more significant.

Post this episode Pavlok has grown by leaps and bounds with multiple users reaching 10,000 users. Surprisingly Daymond of the key sharks is still a big fan of Pavlok and continues to use it but still has not been an investor.
