The Story Behind I Want to Draw a Cat for You
Shark Tank is one of the most famous television shows in the world right now. The concept of the show is simple — come up with a business idea and then pitch it to a bunch of investment sharks and see if any of them are willing to use their own money to invest in the company and help it grow. Usually, the businesses on the show are generating hundreds of thousands of dollars or even millions. Sometimes they are generating just a few hundred, as was the case when Steve made it onto the show and pitched his cat drawing business. You can see his original video commercial that he created for YouTube below. It features Steve singing his original song while highlighting different ways he can draw a cat for you. To date, Steve has now drawn over 20,000 cats as a result of his site and appearance on Shark Tank.

When it was time for Steve to pitch his business to the sharks, he did a great job at it. The idea was so creative and fun, that it eventually grabbed the interest of Mark Cuban, who went on to invest in the company. Steve also mentioned that he was able to partner with Groupon, who has a mascot of a cat — which resulted in over a thousand sign ups to the site. In short, the business model is based on the success and massive attention to cats around the world. Marc even went on to do the “I want to draw a cat for you” dance at the end of the deal.
Mark Cuban Discusses his Investment in I Want to Draw a Cat for You
As previously mentioned, Mark Cuban was the winner of the deal and got to partner with Steve on his fun idea. Even though the money means practically nothing to Mark, it’s still a great example of business opportunities in the world today and how anyone can create something fun and amazing in the process. Marc Cuban pitched an investment of $25k for 33% of the company and after some hesitation, Steve agreed and they both went on to make a perfect partnership. You can see an interview with Mark Cuban below where he discusses the deal and business model on Access Hollywood Live.
If you think you have what it takes to start a crazy business or drawing website idea, then right now is the best time to get started with a blog of your own. The investment is just a few dollars, which is to set up a domain name and hosting. Once this is all in place, you can then start creating whatever type of content or online business you like.
After all… who ever would have thought Steve from “I want to draw a cat for you” would have gone on to the amazing success he has had so far!
