Jillian Jaccard and her boyfriend Connor Pastoor pitched their product PartiePoche – a fashion accessory that holds cell phones — on Shark Tank. People watching the show were interested in buying the product but when they got to the PartiePoche website it read “Sold Out.” Turns out the college kids who met on the Loyola Marymount Cross Country Team had already sold the business to a company called Audacis.

Both PartiePoche and Audacis are defunct. You can still find a couple of Partie Poches on Amazon (see link above). But you might be better off checking out Partie Poche’s competitior, Porta Pocket (see below). P.S. Jillian graduated top of her class and is now working in real estate. Connor got his MBA and is working as an investment consultant.
