Maddie Bradshaw was 15-years-old when she pitched her million dollar bottle cap business, m3 design, on Shark Tank. With her mother and little sister, Maddie wowed the Sharks and got three of them – Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec and Lori Greiner – to invest $300k for 30 percent. At the time, Maddie was a student at the prestigious, all-girls boarding school, The Hockaday School in Dallas, Texas.

M3 Design did not ultimately receive the $300k as negotiated on Shark Tank due to a series of lawsuits pursued by the Bradshaws, but Maddie has gone on to study at Stanford University. She is currently working as a Student Peer Facilitator – one who helps freshmen “navigate their first year at Stanford using design thinking skills.” According to Maddie’s LinkedIn account, she is also volunteering at Ravenswood Preschool via Stanford’s Haas Center for Public Service.
