Sierra Madre Research
Richard and Juli Rhett, a husband and wife team from Vicksburg, Miss. who make hammock shelters and insulated hammocks for camping. They founded Sierra Madre Research.
After spending months traveling the world, our founder Richard Rhett was confronted with two profound problems, the gear he was using didn’t cut it and the astounding number of people living in our world without clean drinking water was unacceptable. Richard decided to begin creating gear that would protect campers regardless of bad weather and provide comfortable nights of sleep regardless of location, he would then use these desirable products as a tool to circle back and begin fighting the water crisis one well at a time! So in 2010 Sierra Madre was born and since then we’ve come a long way – but really, we’re just getting started!

Each week on “Shark Tank,” budding entrepreneurs have the opportunity to pitch their emerging business to six multi-millionaire and billionaire investors, known as sharks: Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks; Daymond John, fashion mogul and founder of FUBU; Kevin O’Leary, self-proclaimed Mr. Wonderful and founder of O’Leary Financial Group; Barbara Corcoran, real estate maven; Lori Greiner, queen of QVC; and Robert Herjavec, technology guru and founder/CEO of the Herjavec Group. Venture capitalist Chris Sacca is also slated to appear as a guest shark this season.
“Shark Tank,” which is based on “Dragons’ Den,” is produced by Mark Burnett and first debuted in 2009. To date, the sharks have invested more than $87 million in various companies after engaging in numerous bidding wars and shark fights. A new episode airs each Friday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
