What Happened To Browndages After Shark Tank?

Though there are many different ways of getting a business or product idea to the general public, not all are as exciting as "Shark Tank," a popular television series that sees entrepreneurs and inventors pitch their product or service to an assemblage of investors. In Episode 20 of Season 13, "Shark Tank" featured a company called Browndages, which makes band-aids that come in varying skin tones. The company was founded by Intisar Bashir and Rashid Mahdi, and their pitch to the investors of "Shark Tank" created quite a frenzy. 

All of the Sharks could see the value in Browndages, which led Lori Greiner to offer a three-way split between her and fellow Sharks Mark Cuban and Daymond John, much to the delight of Bashir and Mahdi. After some back and forth between all of the Sharks and Browndages, the company was able to secure a $100,000 investment and $75,000 line of credit for 25% equity, split between Cuban, John, and Greiner. But what happened next?

Browndages offers much more than bandages now

One of the biggest draws of the deal with Mark Cuban, Daymond John, and Lori Greiner for Browndages is that each one of the Sharks had some aspect of the business that they could help out with. Cuban is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and was able to use the team to promote the product, John is connected with the brand FUBU, and Greiner offered to help with the retail end of the operation. In other words, Browndages certainly scored a slam dunk by appearing on "Shark Tank," and they reported nearly $130,000 in sales in the week following the episode.

Checking out Browndages' official website, one can see that the company has expanded to much more than just simple bandages: It now offers pajamas, first-aid kits, balms, books, and even bundles of their assorted products. In 2022, Browndages had an estimated value of $500,000, as well as somewhere between 11 to 50 employees, which definitely shows that the company is growing. Considering the company's worth in 2022, and their expanding line of products, it is probably safe to assume that Browndages is doing quite well and that the company is still trending upwards.
