WiSpots CEO Kevin Flannery got mauled by TV sharks Sunday night, but he was licking his wounds today, ready to swim again.
Flannery got a chance to pitch his Cary company, which sells wireless devices for physicians’ waiting areas, to billionaire investors on ABC’s new show “Shark Tank.” The ruthless investors, or sharks, were quick to dismiss the concept and essentially told Flannery not to waste any more time or risk any more money.
Since the show’s segments were taped mostly in January, Flannery has known for months that the outcome would sting.
“They didn’t listen and they didn’t really give me a shot,” he said by phone today. “But I also know that [millions of] people saw me and my products.”
And the former Marine has been busy since the taping. In June, he agreed to merge WiSpots with Worthington Healthcare of Raleigh.
