VIA| This man is our new hero. A second generation farmer-turned-inventor, Johnny Georges from Arcardia, Florida went before the five billionaire investors on Shark Tank asking for a $150,000 investment for 20% of his company. What was he representing? A brand new way to irrigate trees that would save local farmers lots of money in fuel and water and would be good for the water conservation effort.
Though it seemed like Georges had a bit of a rough start in his presentation, how he ends his pitch to the Sharks is what blew us away and earned him what we think is one of the best moments of Shark Tank history. Be sure to watch up through the last 30 seconds so you don’t miss any of the touching and inspiring moment.
