Bot-It, the AI-Powered Automation App, Strikes Deal on ABC Shark Tank

Maurice Bachelor and Joel Griffith, the inventors of Bot-It, pitched their AI-powered automation tool on a recent episode of ABC's Shark Tank.

On a recent episode of ABC’s Shark Tank, the founders of Bot-It, Maurice Bachelor and Joel Griffith, pitched their AI-powered automation app to the judges. 

Based in Los Angeles, Bot-It assists users in automating various online tasks, including booking appointments and making restaurant reservations. 

The app also offers a “pro subscription” that allows users to gain advantages such as jumping the line for sneaker release draws and securing concert tickets quickly.

Interest from the Judges:

The pitch garnered the interest of investors Mark Cuban and Michael Rubin, who recognized the app’s potential to counter large-scale bot operations. 

Rubin emphasized that the issue of bots attempting to purchase billions of dollars in products each year is a genuine problem. 

Kevin O’Leary raised concerns about the ethics of supporting such practices. Joel Griffith, Bot-It’s founding partner and head of growth, emphasized that bots aren’t inherently negative and can benefit users.

Negotiations and Deal:

Bachelor and Griffith initially sought $150,000 in trade for a 10% equity stake in their company. Mark Cuban and Michael Rubin made separate offers, with Cuban proposing 20% equity for $150,000 and Rubin valuing the company even higher at $50,000 for a 15% equity stake. 

The founders successfully persuaded the two investors to join forces, resulting in a joint offer of $300,000 for 30% equity. After some hesitation, the founders agreed to this deal.

The Future of Bot-It:

Bachelor expressed his excitement about the deal, calling it “the most important day of the Bot-It life.” 

He believes that having Mark Cuban and Michael Rubin on board will propel the company to the next level, marking a significant milestone for the AI-powered automation app.
