It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come since 2014 when 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 antivirus routine!
Being featured 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.
