Watch Friday April 24th at 8PM Eastern Time to see if SnagaStool founder Jamie Manning and I will get the sharks to back the bar stool reservation app.
SnagaStool was approached originally by Shark Tank producers at a Tech Crunch Pitch off in 2013. Since then we’ll jumped through a series of hoops including a very cool audition video, weekly rehearsals and a trip to hollywood.
Throughout the entire process the most frustrating part was almost every conversation or email ended with one caveat. We were told that things like “we aren’t saying you’ll be on.. ” or “It looks like you are in the running..” or “Chances are looking good”.. “We still aren’t sure you will be flown out” and so on. Even when we were in Hollywood at the hotel, even in the green room, they said they weren’t sure we’d shoot.
Finally after the pitch we were told there was no guarantee we would be on the show. We spent the first few months of this year wondering if it would. A few weeks ago I had just about given up hope when we got the good new.
