What will I learn about?

Tipsy Elves, a now-well-known holiday-themed apparel retailer, is the creation of a corporate lawyer, Evan Mendelsohn, and a dentist, Nick Morton when they realized a void in the “ugly Christmas sweater” market in 2011. Evan and Nick appeared on the award-winning ABC television show, Shark Tank, in December 2013 and walked away with a new partner and mentor, Robert Herjavec, who now describes Tipsy Elves as “the best performing investment I have made since joining the cast of Shark Tank.”

After their TV debut, new partnerships, celebrity exposure, and orders came rolling in. As the business took off, its e-commerce platform lagged behind, stifling its growth as a result.
