2009 Shark Tank Contestant Predicted Market For Masks

  • A writer was watching CNBC when a re-run of Shark Tank was on.
  • The episode was from 2009.
  • A woman named Irina Blok was on the show pitching fashion surgical masks.
  • She believed she created the next big trend.
  • Every investor made fun of her and shut her pitch down.
  • Kevin Harrington called her masks, a novelty item, not a serious item. I just don't see the market for it.
  • Don't worry about Irina, she is the brains behind the Google Android robot logo.
  • Wonder if she kept any of her masks.
  • Has anyone ever shot down an idea of yours at work or school and it was later revealed that your idea was good?
