Sand Cloud Towels
In 2017, Bruno Aschimanini, Steven Ford, and Brandon Leibel appeared on Shark Tank to pitch their idea for Sand Cloud Towels. These fresh towels are fashionable, comfortable, and environmentally friendly. Also, 10 percent of the proceeds made from Sand Cloud Towels are donated to organizations that protect marine wildlife.
Sand Cloud Towels had made more than $2.4 million in sales before appearing on Shark Tank. They ended up making a deal with Shark Robert Herjavec for $200,000 in exchange for a 15 percent stake in the company. Traffic to their website increased exponentially after the episode, and they were on track to earn more than $7 million from sales of Sand Cloud Towels. They also planned to donate $1 million to marine preservation non-profit organizations.
