SMARTwheel™ Featured on ABC Reality Show Shark Tank
SMARTwheel™ came to the attention of ABC's Shark Tank producers in May of 2012 for its potential as a revolutionary new product. By September 2012, we were on our way to Los Angeles to face the Sharks in the Shark Tank.
We were honored to be one of the 100 companies selected from a field of 30,000 applicants for the show.
We couldn’t believe we were walking through the Sony Productions studio lot as we went from rehearsals to shooting the show. The SMARTwheel™ episode premiered on February 15, 2013, and re-aired in June 2013 and other dates since then.
We were thrilled to receive an offer from the Shark Tank investors, but following the show, we decided to move forward without the Sharks and launch SMARTwheelTM on our own. It was a tough decision, but going solo will allow us to bring SMARTwheel™ to consumers as quickly as possible, and we want to do everything we can to stop the numbers of distracted driving-related accidents from rising.
