Mark Cuban, billionaire Owner of the NBA World Champion Dallas Mavericks and star of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” is used to kissing trophies. Now, with his recent investment and partnership with Kisstixx, his next kiss to a trophy will provide a chemical reaction to make the experience even sweeter.
“Kisstixx is already a viral hit that has sold out in every test market we’ve tried. But winning the attention and partnership of Mark Cuban on ‘Shark Tank’ gives us the ammunition to make our product and company a runaway hit”
In the March 2 episode of “Shark Tank,” Cuban invested $200,000 in Kisstixx, makers of a high-quality lip balm that packs a chemical reaction when kissing. Kisstixx’ lip balm comes in two compatible flavors, one for you and one for your partner. When partners kiss, the flavors combine to provide a pleasurable sensation.
“Kisstixx is already a viral hit that has sold out in every test market we’ve tried. But winning the attention and partnership of Mark Cuban on ‘Shark Tank’ gives us the ammunition to make our product and company a runaway hit,” said Dallas Robinson, Kisstixx founder and CEO. “We’re growing fast and have a number of strategies to make the product more available to consumers. We’re confident the expertise and partnership we gain from Mark Cuban will create even more opportunities and open new avenues for growth.”
Flavor combinations include Fire & Ice, Raspberry & Lemonade, Peaches & Cream, Pina Colada & Strawberry Daiquiri, Sweet & Sour and Strawberry & Chocolate.
“Shark Tank” is a reality show where entrepreneurs work to convince a panel of five tough, self-made, multi-millionaire/billionaire tycoons (“Sharks”) to part with their own hard-earned cash to give them the funding they need to jump start their businesses.
After years of mediocrity in the lady department, Kisstixx founders Dallas Robinson and Mike Buonomo decided to make some sweet MySpace profiles—when that didn’t pay dividends they transformed their dorm rooms at Utah Valley University into makeshift chemistry labs and created Kisstixx, the best thing to happen to kissing since the French got a hold of it. With their newfound all-star level tonsil hockey skills, they are now much more popular with the ladies, and by popular we mean they don’t have to do product testing on their hands anymore.
