Shark Tank contestant gives food for thought to budding entrepreneurs at Donald Elementary


Doug Marshall, an entrepreneur and Shark Tank contestant, stopped by L.O. Donald Elementary School to challenge students to think beyond the everyday and find ways to develop their ideas into real products or services.

Marshall appeared on Shark Tank, the hit ABC show, in 2013 with what turned out to be a multi-million dollar idea. Sharks Mark Cuban and Lori Grenier took the bait and invested in Marshall’s product—peel-away, face tattoos.

Doug Marshall talks with L.O. Donald Elementary students about their inventions.

Today, Marshall’s company, The Game Face Company, makes the temporary tattoos and mask for sporting events, Halloween, parties–you name it, and all without the mess of paints.

Marshall’s idea came to him in a dream, and when he woke up, he got to work on his idea and he hasn’t stopped since then. Friends convinced him to try out for Shark Tank, and the rest is history.

Marshall took time this week to talk with TAG students at Donald Elementary to encourage their entrepreneurial spirit, answer their questions and give feedback on their inventions.
