KidRunner

kidrunnerWill Warne hopes the Sharks take a run at his KidRunner, a pull-along kid's seat for joggers, in Shark Tank episode 723. Warne tried to get KidRunner funded on Kickstarter back in the spring of 2015, but he was unsuccessful. Since then, he's been forging ahead with his product.

The KidRunner looks a lot like a bicycle trailer for pulling a kid, but it's designed for joggers. Parents simply secure their kid in the lightweight, enclosed seat, strap on the fully adjustable lightweight waist harness, and go! Warne has some high-profile runners as brand ambassadors who actually run races while toting their kids. The product is stable, aerodynamic and sleek and lightweight (about 20 pounds) due to its carbon fiber and Kevlar construction. Unlike stroller/runners, the KidRunner offers a smoother ride and allows for rougher terrain.

The product is currently available on a “pre-order” basis with a $200 deposit; the total cost for a new unit is $750. They've partnered with Composite Approach, a contract manufacturer specializing in small-scale advanced composite production and assembly, to build the units. Pre-orders ended in December 2015 and delivery of the first units should begin in April or May of 2016.

Warne likely needs a Shark's capital for production and assistance with marketing and distribution. Will a Shark run with this company and invest?

KidRunner Shark Tank Recap

Will will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, 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 he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on KidRunner will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
