This month, Monti Kids turns 2 years old! Actually, before our official launch on March 28, 2017, we spent three years developing our program. When I first had the idea for Monti Kids, I was told by the best safety testing companies and several consultants that it was impossible to achieve.

Behind the Scenes on Our Path to Shark Tank

Over the years, many people suggested that I try and get Monti Kids on Shark Tank. One day, I casually Googled: ”Auditioning for Shark Tank” and saw that there was going to be an open casting call two weeks later in Palm Springs - not too far from where we are in the Bay Area. I decided to go for it! We needed to fill out a long, detailed application about the business, bring samples, and present a one-minute pitch. My baby Zayd was just three months old at the time. I couldn’t leave him and was a little nervous to take him with me but I decided that if I had backup, it would be okay. I asked Berenice, one of the Monti Kids Montessori experts, to come with me to help out. I practiced my pitch with some friends who are big Shark Tank fans and and did a lot of Q&A prep.
