Michael Kane, CEO & Co-Founder, cellhelmet
Michael Kane jumped into the entrepreneurial world immediately after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005 - he never had interest in a typical "career." While he has met many road blocks along the way, he has always persevered with the attitude that "anything is possible, if you're willing to put in the hard work." This was proven true in mid 2012, when his persistence paid off, landed his company "cellhelmet" a spot on ABC's hit television show Shark Tank. The show has since been a valuable marketing tool, exposing the brand to over 7 million viewers. cellhelmet also managed to score an investment within 1 month of filming the show, from 2 individuals who own the majority of the Verizon indirect retailers in Pittsburgh, PA.
