She found an email on the Shark Tank website, sent a pitch at 1:30 p.m. and she got a call from a producer at 5:30 p.m. It was 6 weeks before they filmed.
John on what happened after Mark Cuban’s investment in KaZAM Bikes: “Every day, come to work, pushing the ball down the field. It’s been an amazing journey.”

*Entrepreneur of the Week: Carter Kostler of Define Bottle.
Carter is the 17-year old owner of Define Bottle based in Virginia Beach. He created the idea for a fruit-infused water bottle when he was 13. He made an appearance on Shark Tank and the night the showed aired, his company did a quarter million dollars in sales. Define Bottle is currently selling at Target Stores. To get that opportunity, Carter says he went on LinkedIn to find a Target buyer, messaged the buyer, and within ten days, Target flew his family to the Midwest to discuss terms.
