While the popular ABC show “Shark Tank” is all about striking business deals, it’s not uncommon for passionate contestants to end up in tears as they defend their ideas. However, it’s not often that the Sharks end up, crying too!
On one episode of “Shark Tank,” an entrepreneur named Phillip Lapuz and his partner Eric come to the sharks asking for $150k for a 15% stake in their company, Kronos Golf. They showed off their hand-crafted putter, describing it as the most precise putter in the world. The sharks were all impressed, but 3 of the 5 told Phillip and Eric they just weren’t interested in golf and pulled out, leaving behind only Kevin and Robert.
That’s when Robert asked the question that begins the video below: “What motivated you guys to start your own business?” Immediately, Phillip breaks down in tears.
