Two sisters from Raleigh, North Carolina, Becca Nelson and Ellie Brown, pitched their struggling novelty sticker company, EvREwares, on Shark Tank. (The decorative reusable stickers can adhere to clothing.) On the show, all the sharks told the sticker entrepreneurs they were lost, that they’d never make it. At the very end, billionaire Mark Cuban offered to buy the whole company from them for $200k. The deal never went through.
According to the sisters, when they told Cuban that they changed their mind, Cuban was “so nice about it.” They said he offered to be an adviser to help them turn the company around. EvREwares is still in business and expanding to make sticky labels for wine glasses.
