Lori Cheek brings a service called Cheek’d, the next big thing in online dating, into the Shark Tank in episode 517 on February 28. Cheek’d is more like online dating in reverse – you sign up for the service and you’re sent a stack of cards the size of business cards. Each card has “pick up lines” on them along with a code. If the card recipient is interested, they go to the Cheek’d website and check out your profile; if they’re interested, they can contact you.
Some of the cards are a bit “snarky,” as Lori puts it. They have sayings like “I’m much better than the person you’re with,” “just act natural, we can get awkward later,” and more. What makes Cheek’d unique is it adds a human element to online dating because there’s an actual in-person contact, however brief, before the online courtship starts.
Cheek’d is likely looking for cash and some IT expertise from a Shark.
Cheek’d Shark Tank Recap
Lori will pitch the panel of five Sharks on her business and its prospects for growth. She’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Cheek’d will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
