Pride Bites is an online company that makes personalized pet accessories. The founders of Pride Bites, Steven Blustein and Sean Knecht, pitched their successful, animal loving business on Shark Tank in April 2015. They went into the Tank seeking a $200,000 investment in exchange for 10 percent equity. They left with a $300,000 investment from Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec for 30 percent.
Since Shark Tank, PrideBites received another $500,000 in seed funding from investors including ATX Seed Ventures, BlueStel Ventures, and Tucker Max. And they continue to roll out new designs and products. By the end of 2016, they had introduced 10 new products including varsity dog jackets, rain coats, and sleeveless hoodies. In 2017, they launched waterproof dog collars, step-in harnesses, and a line of luxury leather products. New episodes of Shark Tank airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC.
