Meagan Bowman hopes to get an investment for EcoFlower, her wood and recycled flower business, in Shark Tank episode 808. Bowman got her start in the flower business as a teenager, selling flowers at local dance competitions. She did well, but hated losing the dying/dead flowers. One day, a friend brought her a wooden flower she got on vacation and the proverbial light bulb went off.
Meagan’s dad helped her hand carve dozens of wooden flowers. They quickly sold out and the feedback was all positive. After graduating high school, Meagan went in another direction. Ten years later, her father asked her to give wood flowers another try and EcoFlower was born. Along with business partner Alex Ledoux, she began making and selling wood flowers and other bouquets made from recycled materials like book pages, brooches, burlap, music sheets, pallet wood, pine cones, and sola wood.
Each bouquet has scents infused and the flowers last forever. Bouquets cost $39-$59 and a centerpiece will set you back $139. Her prices are equivalent to fresh flower bouquets, but they are permanent. Her Utah based business operates out of an 8,000 square foot warehouse and employs 30 floral designers. Bowman likely needs cash to fuel growth. Will a Shark like the smell of these flowers?
EcoFlower Shark Tank Recap
Meagan will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. She’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, 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 EcoFlower will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
