After receiving the full support from her peers and the help from Start-Up Weekend getting a patent for the I C Pooch devise, Brooke started a Kickstarter to turn her idea into reality. Not only is this a great way proving your concept, it's almost becoming a prerequisite getting on the Shark Tank with approximately 40% of new products in Season 6 first going the crowdfunding route.
The first Kickstarter campaign ended September 30, 2013, only raising $23,000.00 of the initial $70,000.00 goal. Because Kick Starter has an all-or-nothing clause not reaching the financial objective, all of the $23k was returned. A setback like this is enough for some entrepreneurs to question the entire concept, but Brooke quickly regrouped and launched a brand new campaign with better rewards and a more realistic goal to ensure its success.
The second Kick Starter campaign for IC Pooch successfully ended one year ago before appearing on the Shark Tank raising 50% more than the stated goal on March 4, 2014. A few months later, Martin took the IC Pooch invention to a Shark Tank audition and easily became one of the favorite new product's the producers must have instantly seen the potential. How could any Dog owner not like a product you can talk to your Best Friend anytime you'd like?
IC Pooch reviews before the Shark Tank AppearanceThe majority reviews on the IOC Pooch Video Chat is mostly positive depending on your dog's training. It might take a little training for your pup to recognize you inside a smartphone, but even if they don't, the doggie treat will at least let you see how they're doing. Another good point considering the products called the IC Pooch, does this wireless device also work with other animals like cats? I would imagine the IC Pooch will attract any animal you can entice with a treat. But for the record, there's already a review on Amazon of someone successfully using the IC Pooch specifically for her cat. The insertable dispensers hold a wide variety of treats including the All Natural Dog Cookies Brooke also sells to help further grow her brand. How could any of the Sharks say no to that?
