Partner Content: Invest in RYSE

Invest in the company that won over the Dragons

The pioneer in smart doorbell technology, RING, pitched their business on the hit show Shark Tank at a valuation of just $7 million — the sharks shut them down.

5 years later, the company sold to Amazon for more than $1 Billion. Turning the 10% stake initially offered to the sharks from $700K into $100M!

A similar story is brewing in the Smart Shades segment of the industry, with a company called RYSE pitching on the Canadian version of Shark Tank called Dragon’s Den.

The difference? They received two offers and have an addressable market that could be significantly larger than that of RING’s. The Dragon’s believe that RYSE has the products, technology, and the team to become the market leader for Smart Shades.

The hallmark of all successful smart home products is their ability to launch into retail, and RYSE’s recent deal with Best Buy has put them miles ahead of the competition.
