Bend, Oregon Inventor Plunges into ABC’s Shark Tank

December 15, 2009

BEND, Ore., Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ — Architect Mark Burginger witnessed a slow-down in his work load due to the slump in the housing construction market. So along with his job search he also spent time developing a construction toy for children.

Tune in on Friday, January 29th (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network and see Qubits® Toy Company pitch a new toy idea to the panel of multi-millionaires on “Shark Tank.”

Qubits® is a dynamic new entry into the multi-million-dollar construction toy industry. It is gaining popularity with school teachers, retailers and, of course, children all across the USA. A simple plastic toy that can be built-up using a unique patented modular geometry, it quickly captures the imagination of children who might have visions of becoming architects, engineers, scientists or even nanotech designers.

After a year of successful sales, Mark has now landed the chance to pitch his company/invention to the ruthless investors, also known as sharks, at “Shark Tank,” the popular reality show that, in these trying economic times, gives budding entrepreneurs a chance to make their dreams come true and become successful businesspeople.

Armed with the Qubits® toy, Mark must try to convince five tough, multi-millionaire tycoons to part with their own hard-earned cash and give him the funding he needs to jumpstart his business idea.

The Sharks of “Shark Tank” lifted themselves up by their bootstraps to make their own entrepreneurial dreams come true and turned their ideas into empires. The five Sharks of this dynamic panel are real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, “infomercial” industry pioneer Kevin Harrington, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion icon Daymond John and financial expert Kevin O’Leary.
