Shark Tank Runner-up, An Inventors Journey with Radbeh Ravaz

Passion truly drives Radbeh Ravaz as he chases his dream to bring a product to life. Radbeh invented the next generation beach chair, it passed the 1st SharkTank audition but he was never called back this season. His invention is not anything close to the traditional beach chair that we see on the market. It's something from nature and for nature.  You can wear it like a shield or you can ride it like a bodyboard. He took it to the former bodyboarding world champion and got tons of great feedback and stoke. We talk about manufacturing challenges and domestic production. He laments about why we cannot have a sustainable business if we want to keep the production in the US. He suggests that we are outsourcing our economy and we are shutting down innovation and innovative thinking in an industry that belongs to us and Pacific beach. We review his challenges from the very first stage: insurance, fulfillment, manufacturing, R&D, investors, and basically anything that you can think of when bringing a product to market.
