Partner Content: RYSE
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!
The difference? They received two offers and have an addressable market that could be significantly larger than that of RING’s. The Dragons 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.

Michael Garrity of Financeit
Michael Garrity is the CEO and Founder of Financeit
Financeit was founded in 2011 by Michael Garrity and Casper Wong. With the creation of Financeit, they sought to bridge the gap between financial institutions and everyday consumers seeking accessible and convenient financing options.
The company recognized that the traditional lending process often presented challenges to consumers, including complex paperwork, stringent credit requirements, and lengthy approval times. In response, FinanceIt introduced a novel approach that harnessed the power of technology to streamline and democratize the financing process.
