On Season 11 of Shark Tank, entrepreneurs Eric Goodchild and Jake Slatnick pitched Aira, a wireless phone charging pad. The two men went into the Tank seeking an investment of $500,000 in exchange for seven percent equity. They left with a deal with three Sharks (Kevin O’Leary, Robert Herjavec, Lori Greiner): $500,000 for 15 percent equity.
After the Aira Shark Tank episode originally aired, Aira rolled out FreePower, a pad that can charge multiple devices at one time, and the charging tech company continues to raise money. NOMAD is currently selling a Base Station Pro with Aira’s FreePower technology for $199.95. See video below.
On August 3, 2021, Aira announced that they raised $12 million led by private investors including Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec.
