Spy Escape and Evasion is a survival training business lead by former CIA Agent Jason Hanson. He pitched his business on Shark Tank in February 2014 and made a deal with the adventurous Daymond John — $150,000 for 45 percent. Although John was initially against the idea of opening a “Spy Ranch” — a place where customers can learn Evasive Driving and Pistol and Rifle Shooting, among other things — Hanson persevered and offered two-day stays at the 320-acre ranch for $2400.
[After Shark Tank, Hanson wrote the bestseller Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life]
Hanson has been busy since his appearance on Shark Tank in 2014. He published a New York Times-bestselling book Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life (see link above), and in October 2016 Hanson performed a one-man show in Las Vegas called “Spy Escape & Evasion.” Guess what? After that Hanson was offered a one-year engagement at the Stratosphere Hotel Theater. Hanson continues to run the Spy Ranch, offer classes and sell Spy Escape related products (credit card knives, jiggler keys, gun belts) on his website. [27 All-Time Favorite Shark Tank Products]
