  • Hold Your Haunches … started back in 2010 when Jenny Greer and Erin Bickley, the “Head Haunchos”, were taking their daily exercise stroll and discussing their dissatisfaction with body shaper clothing that just didn’t seem to keep everything in place! They put their heads together and developed Hold Your Haunches, luxury fashion pants with a layer of highly graded compression shapewear that helps present the shapely and smooth silhouette every woman is looking for. In the days following Shark Tank, HYH had sales of approximately $500,000 – and they continue to soar! Visit Hold Your Haunches Visit Cerebral Success

  • Juliet Boydstun and Lucinda Lent , the founders of The COOP… were friends for many years before they had kids. They hung out in cool places, had interesting conversations, and wore high heels. Then Juliet had a baby, then Lucinda – and one more for each quickly followed. No more cool coffee houses or leisurely lunches for the two, who traded in their heels for flats. But their new "hang outs" were uninspired and dull... windowless play spaces overrun with junkie toys and cutesy murals. Not content to accept this fate, the ladies came up with the concept of the COOP. A Cool, modern playspace for kids, that doesn't forget the adults desire to be in a space that caters to them as well (hello...CAPPUCCINO BAR!!!!). The COOP is open, it is clean, it is modern, and it's lots of fun. Visit The Coop
  • Southern belle Kim Daisy … is the founder and chief baker of ilovedaisycakes.com. Kim's Great Aunt Daisy taught her the simple secrets to baking authentic, homemade, four layer cakes at the strings of her apron.

On November 30th, Kim Daisy made her first appearance on QVC. Kim Daisy sold double what QVC anticipated and is now a regular top selling brand and personality on QVC! Visit Daisy Cakes
  • Veteran Flight Attendant Darryl Lenz, founder and inventor of the Ride On Carry On noted that baby strollers were a complete hassle at airports. So she invented a clever chair that attaches to carry-on luggage and lets children get a free ride! Her chair folds flat, goes right through security and fits nicely into the plane's overhead bin. Since the Georgia couple showed their Ride On Carry On chair on Shark Tank, their website has been completely re-vamped and the chairs have been produced in four new colors and flown off the shelves, with online sales increasing a hundredfold and gaining distribution in 16 countries.

  • Brett Thompson & Heath Hall of Pork Barrel BBQ … were Washington lobbyists hustling pork barrel spending on the US senate floor.

Heath Hall looks just like an adorable pig and Barbara made dressing like a pig the marketing gimmick part of the deal. Visit Pork Barrel BBQ
  • Tiffany Krumins from Auburn Georgia, inventor of Ava the Elephant Medicine Dispenser… was a young nanny-turned-entrepreneur who invented a friendly elephant-faced medicine dropper that cheers children on to take their medicine. When Tiffany presented her product on Shark Tank she held only a handmade clay prototype. But two years after her appearance on Shark Tank, Ava The Elephant was manufactured in China and sold nationwide in CVS, Safeway, Kerr Drugs, Harmens, McKesson and Kroger.
