Since more than a decade, entrepreneurs have impressed the Sharks on ABC’s “Shark Tank”, showcasing an array of innovative businesses. Sean Adler introduced a new concept in Season 14, Episode 6: Nana Hats. San Diego-born wealth management, driven by a mission of preservation bananas, presented this idea to a panel including Peter Jones and Mark Cuban.
How did Nana Hats fare in the Shark Tank
Adler’s appearance in Shark Tank was pivotal for Nana Hats. He struck a deal despite wanting a bigger investment with Peter Jones and Lori Greiner. Adler’s business and himself were able to achieve a major milestone with this partnership. The Sharks and the audience were intrigued by his innovative product that extends the shelf-life of bananas.
What makes Nana Hats unique?
The Nana Hat is not just another banana preservation tool. These silicone caps fit snugly onto bananas. The Nana Hats site claims that these BPA-free silicon hats can extend the freshness of bananas when they are placed on their crown. This is a fascinating science – the hats stop the bananas from ripening by preventing the release of ethylene. Customers report that the bananas’ life is extended by up to 150%.
Nana hats are stylish and affordable.
Nana Hats combine style and functionality. These hats, which are priced at about $11 per pack of two hats, not only add style to your fruit bowl but are also practical. These knitted character designs are also about $11 per piece and add a quirky and fun twist to banana storage.
