Kara Haught and Shelly Hyde pitch Raising Wild, their line of swimwear that allows for full movement, in Shark Tank episode 804. The two sisters grew up in Florida and wore their bathing suits all the time. They started their company to provide women a stylish bathing suit that “embraces movement.”
Growing up, when they weren’t at the beach, fishing, wake boarding or otherwise enjoying the Florida outdoors in their bathing suits, they were still in their bathing suits! A bathing suit to a Floridian is like a pair of jeans to folks elsewhere in the USA. They also grew up watching their mother sew.
In 2015, they decided to follow in mom’s footsteps and design their own line of bathing suits that looked good, but allowed for some range of motion while enjoying outdoor activities. Raising Wild bathing suits look glamorous and sexy, but still allow women to “raise their own wild.” Reviews of the suits indicate that women like the fit and fashion of the products.
They likely need a Shark’s help with cash for growth and sourcing production. Will a Shark”raise some wild” (and some cash) and invest in this business?
Raising Wild Shark Tank Recap
Kara and Shelly will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’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 they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Raising Wild will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
