Camping – you either love it or you hate it. While some thrive in nature, others are daunted by the hard work that comes along with it. Chopping firewood, pitching a tent, cooking over an open flame … let’s be honest, it’s not the most relaxing of vacations. That’s why we, along with the cast of Shark Tank, were excited to learn about the Windcatcher.
The revolutionary technology was created by Ryan Frayne, who says he was inspired by a family beach trip. After watching his brother try and fail to blow up an inflatable toy, he knew there was room in the market for something new. After seeing it in action, it’s no wonder that world-famous investor Lori Greiner gave him $200,000 for a mere 5 percent of the company. With Ryan and Lori working together, there’s little doubt that the Windcatcher will transform the camping industry.
