Entrepreneurs: Kevin Greco
In Season 12 Episode 7, Kevin Greco introduces his ski boot blades ODR Skis – a cross between ski boots and ice skates. They can be used from as little as 3 years old to over 65. They are also safer than traditional skis but this doesn’t compromise the performance, thanks to their Hard-Flex system that gives you all-day comfort. ODR Skis were launched in 2017 and generated $660,000 in sales and continued the growth the following year almost reaching 1 million dollars in sales.
According to the founder of ODR Skis, Kevin Greco in 2019 he projects to reach 1.5 million in sales. His product continues to gain traction among thousands of ski riders across more than 41 countries.
In 2018 ODR Skis was one of the fastest-growing winter sports goods brands in the world. They are more affordable compared to snowboards which makes them more attractive to regular skis or snowboard lovers. Unfortunately, Kevin was not able to close a deal with any of the sharks.

Entrepreneurs: Dahlia Rizk
Buckle Me Baby Coats is an award-winning design and safer baby and toddler winter coat for use in car seats. Side zipper and hook & loop closures at the shoulders enable you to move the entire front panel and shoulders out of the way before securing the car seat harness. You can easily move the front panel back out of the way when the car warms up to avoid overheating.
The founder Dahlia Rizk brought her idea to life after she started a Kickstarter campaign that was able to raise over $6,000 which surpassed her goal of $5,000. An interesting strategy that Buckle Me Baby use is that they allow customers to return their used coats by participating in their “trade up” program, which gives them $20 off on their next purchase. On top of that, the coats that are in good condition are donated to organizations such as New England Pediatric Care, Nuday Syria, and New Hampshire Girls.
The crash-tested of the coats shows that they performed almost identically to no coat at all, and it had been also inspected by Child Passenger Safety Technicians and first responders.

The Toilet Timer from the Katamco company resets instantly due to its unique mechanism, without needing to hold upside down. It can be purchased from their website or from Amazon for $14.99.
Toilet Timer started after raising $23,000 for a goal of $20,000 from a Kickstarter campaign.
