ENTREPRENEUR: Kim Preis
PITCH: Samson Martin
ASKING FOR: $50k for a 15% stake
BEST PART OF THE PITCH: Kim designs t-shirts for pregnant women that basically tell people when the stork is arriving. The due date is front and center for everyone to see. Kim began selling the shirts in upscale boutiques. She wants to produce a more economical collection and take it to mass retailers. She's done $1.4 in sales out of her basement over six years. She has a trademark on the words "Due In" for clothing.
DO THE SHARKS BITE? Kevin O. doesn't like the fact that Kim can only sell to women who are pregnant. Robert actually likes the niche market appeal of it all. Barbara agrees. The problem is that sales have been going down over the years. Daymond says the women's clothing market is in a tough state right now, so he's out. Kevin H. is, too. Barbara isn't sold on the "Due In" appeal. She's out, as is Robert. Kevin O. feels he'd be killing money if he invested, so he's out. Here's hoping Kim can bring her baby-friendly biz back into prominence all on her own.
