Wall Rx inventor Dr. Jim Lewis is no stranger to network television: the forensic pathologist was the DNA specialist for NBC during the O.J. Simpson murder trial and on “America’s Most Wanted.” Dr. Lewis is no stranger to business success either. His Wall Rx drywall repair kits are available in every Lowe’s Home Improvement store and he’s sold over 90,000 units in his first year in business.
Lewis came up with the idea for Wall Rx when he accidentally punched a small hole in his wall while hanging Christmas decorations. After getting a steep repair bill, he sought a better way to repair holes in drywall that anybody could do.
The Wall Rx drywall repair kits contain everything you need to patch small holes from 1-4 inches in diameter. At less than ten bucks per kit, it’s a much more economical option than calling a handyman to do the job. Dr. Lewis may not need the Sharks’ help getting on the shelves, but he’s likely looking for capital and a “strategic partner” to expand his business.
Wall Rx Shark Tank Recap
Dr. Lewis will pitch the panel of five Sharks on his business and its prospects for growth. He’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, 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 Wall Rx will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
