By all accounts, LA’s Rareform was doing pretty well. They had a unique product that was clearly resonating with Millennial consumers – one of a kind bags and accessories made from repurposed vinyl billboards.

Then a little thing called “Shark Tank” happened.

In this week’s episode, co-host Sean Spear sits down with Rareform co-founder and managing partner Aric Avedissian. Aric takes us through the company’s early beginnings, telling us how his brother Alex came up with the idea while working with a non-profit in El Salvador, and why Aric first said “no” when he came to him with the idea.

He also describes the outsized impact that their recent Shark Tank appearance has had on Rareform’s business, as well as what it’s really like to pitch your idea to the likes of Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, and “Mr. Wonderful.”
