Kevin Harrington, original Shark from Shark Tank, and the inventor of the infomercial, invests in iConsumer
CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / October 8, 2019 / iConsumer Corp. ('RWRDP') (OTCQB:RWRDP), the only company to offer publicly traded stock as a reward for online shopping, announced today it appointed Kevin Harrington, an original Shark on ABC's hit show Shark Tank, to its Board of Advisors following his investment in the company.
'iConsumer is ideally situated to grow from a public startup into a massive business,' said Harrington. 'Every customer gets to be a shark - sharing in the company's success right beside me, simply by shopping at their favorite stores. Shop Like a Shark™ is a powerful proposition.'
iConsumer Corp. is the first company to make it possible to shop like a shark. Every customer automatically becomes an investor in iConsumer by shopping online at over 2,000 retailers. An equity crowdfunding pioneer, iConsumer used Reg. A+ (the 2012 JOBS Act) to make it possible for millions of ordinary people to be investors in a publicly-traded startup.
'It's proof that making every customer a shareholder, and every shareholder a customer, has enormous growth opportunity,' Harrington continued. 'I've become an investor to take this vision to a new level, and introduce millions of people to the world of investing - all by doing something they're already doing: shopping. The more people who experience being owners with me, the bigger iConsumer will become. We have the chance to create a massive company, with millions of customer/shareholders.'
Instead of points or miles, iConsumer uses its traded equity as an incentive mechanism: offering RWRDP as a reward for making purchases at online retailers. Retailers pay iConsumer in referral fees; shoppers share in the success of the company.
Robert Grosshandler, iConsumer CEO said, 'Kevin's involvement adds enormous depth and experience. iConsumer is a public startup. We're a loyalty platform, combined with mass market direct response, combined with a public company. Nobody has more experience than Kevin in these worlds. His partnership opens new doors for iConsumer, and with every new door opened, each one of our shareholders benefits.'
This is an exciting time for any individual, and especially first-time investors, to learn about investing and growing their wealth without putting money down. To become an iConsumer shareholder, people should visit iconsumer.com/shark to sign up for free. Through an online portal, iOS and Android apps, and a browser extension, iConsumer members can shop at their favorite stores to earn stock and save money.
Grosshandler added, 'We jumped through significant regulatory hoops so that everybody, not just rich people, can be an investor in our startup. And we went through even more hoops so that you can do it without ever having to write a check to us. The more people who use iConsumer, the stronger we'll become.'
