On Friday, April 7, 2023, Cincha, a company that makes a hands-free travel belts, appeared on Shark Tank. The company’s founders, James and Ashley, pitched their business to the sharks and asked for an investment of $200,000 in exchange for 15% equity.
The sharks were impressed with Cincha’s product and business model. They liked that the product was simple, yet effective, and that the company had a strong online presence. However, they were hesitant to invest because they were concerned about the company’s valuation.
In the end, Barbara Corcoran made an offer of $200,000 in exchange for 25% equity. James and Ashley accepted the offer, and Cincha is now a part of the Shark Tank family along with Parting Stone.
How They Got Started
James and his fiancee Ashley met in college and quickly became friends. They both loved to travel, but they were always frustrated by the hassle of carrying around their personal belongings. They decided to create a product that would make travel easier and more convenient.
After months of research and development, they came up with the Cincha. The belt is designed to securely attach personal bags to luggage handles, providing hands-free convenience during travel.
What’s Next for Cincha Travel Belts
With the help of their new investor, Barbara Corcoran, Cincha Travel Belts is poised for growth. The company plans to use the investment to expand its marketing and distribution efforts. It also plans to develop new products and accessories. They are currently available to buy on Amazon, in a variety of colors.
Cincha Travel Belts is a great example of a small business that has the potential to be successful. The company has a strong product, a great team, and a clear vision for the future. I’m excited to see what Cincha accomplishes in the years to come.
