In episode 619 of Shark Tank, two guys presented the Napwell sleeping mask, an eye pillow alarm clock designed to wake you up gently by simulating a sunrise to your eyes. The guys had impressive qualifications, with advanced degrees from top schools in medicine, biophysics, computer science, and so on.
Mark Cuban responded with a rant. Mr. Cuban seemed to be saying that the product being presented was too simple for such highly qualified guys, that it must be some sort of Trojan horse for something else. The guys looked perplexed.
This is not the first time he has made similar insinuations on the show.
- When was the previous time he went on a similar rant? I can't remember the specifics.
- What does he mean? He seems to be saying that the product being presented is not the real deal, and that the entrepreneurs have something more sophisticated up their sleeves. Why? How would such a scheme benefit the entrepreneur?
