YumaLite Light Therapy Visor for Winter Blues Gets the Thumbs Up from All of the Dragons on the Dragons’ Den
If you have watched the Dragons’ Den in Canada or have seen the Shark Tank on ABC in the U.S., you know it’s very difficult to get the backing of one Dragon let alone all of the Dragons. YumaLite™ so impressed the panel of business experts that they received offers from all five Dragons and agreed to a deal with four of the Dragons.
TORONTO, ON – YumaLite™ is pleased to announce its successful appearance on CBC’s Dragons’ Den culminating in a deal with four of the Dragons, which included the Dragons agreeing to help market YumaLite™ around the world.
Dragons Bruce Croxon, Arlene Dickinson, Jim Treliving and Robert Herjavec (who also appears on ABC’s Shark Tank) agreed to invest together in YumaLite™, which offers an affordable and portable light therapy treatment for the millions of North Americans who are affected by Winter Blues. The fifth Dragon, Kevin O’Leary (who also appears on Shark Tank) made a separate offer, further validating Yumalite.
As many as 90% of North Americans experience some of the symptoms of Winter Blues as the winter days get shorter and darker, including lethargy, trouble waking up in the morning, gaining weight and a drop in energy, enthusiasm and productivity.
“I’m a huge fan of Dragons’ Den. As a career entrepreneur, I have always wanted to make my pitch on the Den and YumaLite™ gave me the perfect opportunity,” said YumaLite™ founder Sean Miller who appeared on the Dragons’ Den with his business partner Leanne Webb. “YumaLite™ can help so many people who suffer from Winter Blues and my partner and I really wanted the Dragons to see this potential, but I know how tough they are. When all five said they wanted to invest it was more than I could have hoped for. Having the Dragons support and validate our product as an affordable consumer treatment for Winter Blues is a tremendous endorsement for YumaLite™. We look forward to finalizing our deal with the Dragons soon.”
YumaLite™, which utilizes patent pending, clinically proven technology, retails for $99.99 and is a lightweight visor that rests comfortably on the head. It allows consumers to obtain the benefits of light therapy while carrying on with their regular routine and without spending several hundred dollars on existing light box therapy products. In as few as seven days, wearing YumaLite™ for just 30 minutes a day, users generally experience an improvement in their mood.
