Inventor and entrepreneur Frank Scozzafava of Mix Bikini designs, manufactures and markets interchangeable reversible bikinis. Frank is also a client of Kloss, Stenger and LoTempio.
Shark Tank is a business-themed reality series on CNBC that features the sharks — experienced, self-made, multi-millionaire and billionaire tycoons – who listen to the presentations of hopeful entrepreneurs and offer business deals that could make some lucky contestants millionaires.
As a patent attorney it always makes me happy to see an inventor succeed with manufacturing, marketing and getting an invention to the market.
It just goes to show that good ideas are worth protecting. Success stories are nice, but that shouldn’t undermine all the hard work and “never say die” attitude that it takes to get into the position to make such a deal.
But, I would like to think that nothing is impossible. Inventors should believe it is possible to get a white knight to back their idea with a deal like Frank made with with Barbara Corcoran on “Shark Tank.”
Frank’s invention allows the wearer of a bikini to mix different bikini parts to create a huge wardrobe of bikinis with just a few parts.
The trick is to mix and match left and right triangle with halter-tops and with classic or scrunchie bottoms that connect with rings and strings to create thousands of bikinis. The more bikini parts you collect, the more bikinis you create.
This inventive configuration allows the user to reassemble and MiX Bikini as much as they want.
Scozzafava stated on the show.
“I’m super happy,” he said. “I just made a deal with Barbara, who was the coolest one and that’s who I wanted to make a deal with.”
He recently launched his new website Mix Bikini “The changeable Bikini.”
