People: Maria Curcio and Veronica Perlongo
Original Offer to the Sharks: $125,000 for 7% stake

What could be worse than finding out a hotel room (or airplane, or dorm room, or anywhere) is infested with bed bugs? Entrepreneuer Maria Curcio has a solution that she invented herself — an early detection system for bedbugs that already has sales through the roof. We look forward to learning a lot more about Maria’s story on tonight’s episode of Shark Tank.

So will the Sharks bite — stay tuned!

    Buggy Beds, the business has had an offer of $5 million for a buy out prior to this Shark Tank investment. A predator is likely to move in again before the 25%, $250k is signed and complete…..Ladies stick with the Shark Tank investors. There is more to this story. This excellent business idea can go further; hold onto the Shark Tank investment. Great pitch too.

    Best Wishes,
