Thompson Tee, maker of an undershirt that prevents embarrassing sweat stains, was one of the veteran-owned businesses featured on Shark Tank in May 2017. After Thompson Tee founders Billy Thompson and Randy Choi pitched their sweat-proof technology and under-$25 shirts, investor Robert Herjavec offered them $700,000 as a loan at 18 percent interest. They accepted with a counteroffer. (Thompson and Choi went into the Tank looking for $700k in exchange for seven percent equity.)
Since Shark Tank, Thompson Tee has published a new, free e-book titled “The Ultimate Guide to Dry Pits.” It gives tips on how to “stay calm, cool and collected this summer.” Download below. Shark Tank will return with new episodes with a special, 2-hour Season 9 premiere on Sunday, October 1 at 8pm.
