Did you see the recent Shark Tank episode featuring the company Postcard on the Run? Congrats to the company for making a deal with Shark Tank investor, Robert Herjavec. He bought into the company at $300,000 for 7.5% (a $4 million valuation).
Robert’s face lit up when founder of Postcard on the Run, Josh Brooks (who formerly ran marketing for MySpace), mentioned that his business partner and investment company is celebrity Selena Gomez who was involved in the angel round and the seed round of funding. After hearing that information, Robert jumped to make an offer and invest in the company.
Celebrity endorsements and/or photos of celebrities with products give companies an added credibility which leads to greater growth. Imagine going into a meeting with a potential investor or retail store buyer, and sharing pictures of your product photographed with celebrities who are now FANS of your product! It would help seal the deal.
