How Dragons’ Den Changed Our Business

Hard to believe it’s been 5 years since we were the ‘Caped Crusaders’ pitching FixMeStick on Dragons’ Den (the Canadian equivalent of Shark Tank). Now, nearly 1 million new malware threats are released every day, but our mission remains the same: save the computers of the world.

Since we were on Dragons’ Den we’ve grown sales from $400k to $20 million making us the 5th most successful business to pitch on Dragons’ Den (video only available in Canada, scroll for full article). Today, you can find FixMeStick in over 3,000 stores in Canada and 10,000 stores in the United States. And we couldn’t have done any of it without you, our loyal customers!

Our appearance on Dragons’ Den was instrumental to our growth. We were nervous to go on Dragons’ Den, and shy to really promote our company and our product. But going on Dragons’ Den skyrocketed our sales and now we receive weekly messages from people who have made FixMeStick a part of their routine. It’s great validation that people like our product.

Being on Dragons’ Den helped us in other ways too – like finding a USB manufacturer. When we started out, we couldn’t get the USB manufacturers to take us seriously, so we wound up buying really low quality USB sticks off the internet. After Dragons’ Den we were finally able to get a deal in place to get better sticks at an affordable cost.

    I’ve lost my stick. Do I have to purchase a new one? If so how much would it be? Can I still take advantage of the $10.00 offer? Thanks, great product.

    Thank you and I am so glad to see how you guys have come such a long way. Kudos to you both. I love the fixmestick, it has made me money as well. Many people out there don’t have a clue how to operate a PC and therefore end up with much adware, spyware and viruses. Thank to you I can use this stick to help many people clean their PC’s and save them money on not having to buy a new one. I am not expensive so my main thing is to help people save a little money when everything else is doing everything they can to get people to spend more money when most of the time it just takes a little fixmestick to solve all their problems. Thank you again and I wish you had a plan on unlimited use so I would not have to continue to buy more each time I repair a PC.

    I am very thankful to you and your product of FixMeStick. I am a senior. A few years ago got scammed and it cost me a lot to get it fixed. Being on Social Security I don’t have a lot to waste and am not savvy on how to “get ‘er done” on technical stuff. Now I feel a lot more comfortable and am very thankful for the monthly reminders to do it every month. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

    For somebody who doesn’t know much about computers , I thought just having an anti virus was enough. After you guys explained the need for fix me stix I purchased yours ,also when you told me the stix goes hand in hand with my anti virus was even happier.Made both purchases from same tv show so this was a slam dunk decision.My computers are running great!

    My PC won’t even start up. It’s so full of malware and other things now. After about 6 months it didn’t work at all. So now my PC has been sitting for the last 3 years. No matter how many times I updated and used it ,fixmestick couldn’t fix my PC. Any low cost answers? Thanks ,James Berg-Johnsen

    I don’t know how my computer would function properly without FixMeStick. I depend on it to help because I know little about computers, but use almost daily. I had a bar that appeared on the top of my screen that I could not get rid of. I thought FixMeStick might help. I ran a scan and it disappeared. It saves me a lot of grief. I have had it for years and now wonder what I did without it. Thank you, FixMeStick!

    I do not remember signing up for any membership. What I understood was that when I bought it was for a 1 time deal. I do not like paying for a monthly service if I don’t use my comuter that much. I use my phone most of the time.
    My computer is still slow and it says it cleaned. So I went and bought another computer. When I use my computer it’s mostly for paying bills. I don’t have a web site or business.

    To be honest with you folks if I cant find fix me stick at our local stores when I need to update to a new computer I practically panic because I have no idea how those other virus protection software products work and many of them are confusing to a non tech savvy senior like me but my fix me stick I just plug in and let it go and it does me right every time. Now that I can download it life’s gotten even easier. Thanks guys

      Hey there Michael, we appreciate this feedback! Next time you want to add a computer contact us, you can do so on your same FixMeStick USB (no need to buy a new one)!

    As a Canadian and wife of a pastor, your American money costs are too high for me to continue, plus I am very careful, so the stick did nothing for me when I inserted it after purchase. I am glad you are doing well, but the stick isn’t worth my renewing at such a cost.
    Thanks.

    How many times can you use one stick? Can you up-date the one you have or have to buy another one? I would buy another one for the price your offering of $10.00 I’m also a senior living on a budget and had to save to buy the stick my son bought for me. He is also on a tight budget, can you please let me know by e-mail? thanks, Stella Kowalchuk;

    Fix me stick did not work for the problems we had with windows 7; it is of no use to me at all.
