- Shark Tank contestant
Category : All industries
Lisa’s success began with her idea for a barrette. While working for the CBS affiliate in Tucson, AZ she often wore her hair up in a French Twist. Friends and co-workers regularly asked how she fashioned the professional up-do so she began to scour stores to find a barrette that would help. When she discovered there was nothing on the market she decided to invent one. A short thirteen months later she had patented, manufactured, sold to stores and ultimately licensed the patent to Scunci® for 20 years of regular income. The product is now sold in stores around the world and has generated over $20M globally!
Since then Lisa has licensed 6 more products to manufacturers including Goody Products®, Scunci®. and Helen of Troy®. In 2007 she licensed Bow Pets from inventor, Shadra Castillo, and redesigned it, filed 3 more patents, manufactured, imported and began selling the modified product, TC Pets®. It won numerous awards and been featured on the ABC reality show Shark Tank where she won the coveted investment of “Shark” Daymond John of FUBU. In 2015 Lisa launched her newest product Masqué Rage.
In addition to successfully commercializing her own products, she has helped numerous companies and inventors.
