Insert clever phrase here.

Saw a teaser video on tvguide.com and the owner of Geek Chic was showing off one of their gaming tables to Mark Cuban and the other ”sharks”. Looked interesting...

I love their stuff, and will watch,....

I think however; that their business will be considered too niche for the Sharks to invest in.

Take a shot every time they say...
"It doesn't really scale"

and...
"I don't see recurring revenue"

Finally..
"the furniture business is a tough one to get in..."

BUT, at least it's real and somewhat established. I hate it when I see people either half-step or try to scam a useless business off on people.

Did anyone see this? I saw a rerun, even though it was in the DirecTV guide as the Geek Chic episode

Events in Boston last night preempted it. Sounds like ABC pushed the episode out a couple weeks instead of not having it air in the northeast.

I finally got to see the episode, it was really interesting to see Robert pitch to the Sharks and I thought he did a great job. I won't spoil the outcome for anyone who wants to watch it. I was surprised by the numbers pitched though...

That's extremely generous. I am not sure I would value the business at $1.2 million.
