"You're teaching kids to code!" "You're ex-Googlers!" "You ship physical stuff!" they insisted. "You're PERFECT for Shark Tank!"
So we looked into it. Aidan found out that 40,000 companies compete for 100 spots per season. Scott watched it for the first time. We decided it wasn't a high priority.
Then we found out about an open-call audition in the same building as a trade show we'd already be attending in NYC. What the heck. Aidan put on a clean Bitsbox shirt, grabbed a box of our materials and joined the line of hopefuls dressed as unicorns and sharks. The rest is history.
Scott and Aidan (representing our small but determined band of Bitsboxers) will make their national television debut on Friday, February 17th. We can't tell you how it went, but rest assured that Scott remembered his lines and the camera didn't see Aidan pee his pants. Because he didn't. Not at all.
