Our Big News!

Officially applying for Shark Tank!

As we promised, we have some big news to share with all of you! After 8 months of selling our Atlas Project in markets across the Northeast, shipping orders across the U.S. and in some cases the world, being sold in three different shops in the Greater Boston area, and of course, buying first rounds for Atlas Travelers on four different continents, we have finally positioned ourselves in regards to our growth trajectory and numbers to go for the big move. A move that has been suggested to us by many of you at nearly every market! We’ve officially decided to fill out and submit our application for Shark Tank!

How we started Tribute Products, listening to business podcasts while loading UPS trucks at 4 am, experimenting with new flag designs by ten, sending out to prototypes to friends around the world at around 5, learning how to build a website til 7 at the local Starbucks, finishing the day by assembling Atlas Kit while watching Shark Tank from 9 til about 11, and then starting it all over again 5 hours later.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing with all of you the different parts of the Shark Tank applications as well as our responses to give you full insight into the process.

Now, we completely understand that it is a very very long shot that we will be accepted, but regardless, we wanted to share this news with all of you and once again thank all of you. Because the undeniable truth is that none of this would have been possible without any of you. From day one, we agreed that we would only grow from the support of our customers, no outside money, no loans, nothing except but the support from those who were as crazy as us and saw their world map and their Atlas not as a decorative pieces but as an endless open invitation to go.

My first grade teacher, Mrs. Ruth Levy Stroh, once taught me something that I’ve more or less followed my whole life, “All glory comes from daring to begin.” :) It has been a dare I’ve accepted time and time again, so why not once more!

Cheers and Many Thanks,

Matt
