So, now that the show has aired, and most people have watched it either live or via DVR, we can start talking about it!
If you want some details on what transpired you can read: this article.
Basically, we took $200k from Kevin O’Leary and Mark Cuban in exchange for 40% of the company. These two bring some good things to the party – O’Leary ostensibly (I will let you Google it to see what I qualify the statement) has some good contacts in the toy industry and Cuban brings some good internet scaling and content delivery chops.
Only time will tell just how this whole arrangement works out but of course we are excited about the prospect of what the future might bring!
Toygaroo is America’s biggest, best and perhaps only quality toy rental company. Right now we only service the continental US (even though I am a Canadian living in Spain! Go figure). Plans range from around $30/month on up, depending on how many toys you want and for how long.
Under the hood Toygaroo runs on Ruby on Rails and utilizes a version of the software we developed for FilmAmora.com. I am on board as CTO.
Since the airing of the show – 2 days ago – we’ve had over 100,000 page views and a whack of signups. In other words – it pays to be on TV!
