An Amarillo Farmers Agent, Scott Houdashell and his friend Curtis McGill hit it big on the Shark Tank this week receiving multiple offers to invest in their multi-million dollar eggmazing business which began with an electric screw driver, hot glue stick and a spoon……………………
Scott explains how the idea started:
The idea came while decorating with family and friends during Easter of 2015. We were all in the kitchen making a mess with the traditional vinegar and dyes. With a borrowed electric screwdriver, hot glue stick and a spoon, the first Eggmazing was born.
The first prototype was built with wood and spare parts laying around my workshop. From start to finish, approximately eight prototypes were built. Over 1,000 hours were spent with research and development.
We weren’t really sure what to egg-spect with our Kickstarter campaign. It was our first one. Our campaign was a successful and helped raised funds to move forward with packaging design, but launching an Easter product before Christmas showed to be a struggle with it going viral.
My advice to future contestants Is don’t hold back when you have your chance. This is your one chance to convince the Sharks to believe in you and your product/idea. Oh and know your numbers!
