This Tech Entrepreneur Made a Surprising Decision on ABC's Shark Tank

Sara Rice, Social Media Intern, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)

Robbie Cabral created a smart lock after taking notice of the issues people were having with their traditional locks at the gym.  BenjiLock (a Consumer Technology Association [CTA] member) is a rechargeable padlock with fingerprint technology built in. The device can support four fingerprints and can also be opened using a traditional key.

After exhibiting in Eureka Park at CES 2017 and becoming a CES 2017 Innovation Award honoree, Cabral and the BenjiLock appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank to see if he could get an investment from the sharks. After making his pitch, Cabral accepted an offer from Kevin O’Leary, surprising all the other sharks on the panel. See the full summary of this episode of Shark Tank here.
