Whatever Happened To Stealth Bros & Co After Shark Tank?

Everyone who appears on "Shark Tank" hopes to make the world a better place in one way or another through their product or service. But few can quite match the heart-tugging and relevant mission of Braxton Fleming and his company, Stealth Bros and Co. Being a transgender man, Braxton was surprised by how difficult it was for him and many others in the community to travel about with hormone injections and other necessary medication. To combat this issue, Braxton went on to create a stylish dopp kit that allows for a discreet way to travel with medications. The kits are also popular amongst diabetics, individuals going through infertility treatment, and even tattoo artists. 

When appearing on the tank for the show's 14th season, Braxton came looking for $200,000 in exchange for 15% of the business. The sharks are not only amazed by Braxton's work ethic and success but also his infectiously joyous personality. Barbara Corcoran and Mark Cuban decide to go in together, offering a $100,000 cash investment and another $100,000 as a line of credit, along with 20% equity, which Braxton eventually accepts. With the deal, Braxton has not only become yet another winning entrepreneur but has also made "Shark Tank" history.

Braxton is the first Black transgender person to get a Shark Tank deal

The "Shark Tank" deal for Braxton Fleming's dopp kit company Stealth Bros and Co comes at a pressing time as transphobic laws are being enacted throughout the United States at an alarming rate. Such a victory on its own is worth celebrating, but Braxton himself is also breaking barriers, having become the first Black trans person to get a deal on the long-running reality show. On crossing such a historical milestone, Braxton describes the emotions running through his head on a Twitter video, saying, "I don't even know how to feel right now. Really grateful, really pumped. It's surreal bro."

Shortly after the episode's airing, Braxton sold out of practically his entire inventory, as he shares on an episode of the GLAAD series "Changemakers." In a more recent interview with TD Stories, Braxton shares that the product has reached out to 3,000 CVS stores. His upcoming goals are to create a duffle bag that can carry both medications and clothing, along with eventually owning a warehouse.  

There's no question that Stealth Bros and Co will continue to make groundbreaking accomplishments in the near future, all in the name of making the world a better and more accessible place, one kit at a time.
