ENTREPRENEUR: David A. Cox
PITCH: PC CLASSES ONLINE
ASKING FOR: $150k for a 15% stake
BEST PART OF THE PITCH: While teaching basic computer classes to the general public, David realized that most of his students were over the age of 50. He introduces his newest student, the Emmy-winning writer Bruce Vilanch as part of a demo. These two met when David taught Bruce's mother how to Skype. Now the funnyman can't get rid of her on the computer. David has about $35k in revenue with his classes.
DO THE SHARKS BITE? Mark says David doesn't want to bundle the product. He wants it to be an add-on. This mistake in reasoning has Kevin calling David a bozo. Mark says the idea of classes online has been around since the mid-1980s. He doesn't believe he has a clue about running his business. He's out. Robert follows his lead. As do Daymond, Kevin and Barbara. On the bright side, Bruce wants to take David out for some sushi.
