SPERGO on 'Shark Tank': What is the cost, who is the founder and how to buy the streetwear?
Whenever it boils down to the Sharks talking about their own entrepreneurial journeys, they often mention how their hunger success and tenacity often began at a young age. They all had a dream and worked tirelessly towards achieving the same, regardless of the hardships that came with it. And now, they've all reached a point where they dominate the field they're in. This week, the Sharks come face to face with a 15-year-old CEO who is here to change the game.
For Trey Brown and his company SPERGO, it all began with the desire to create a positive impact and be the right kind of influence to the people around him. And while he has done more than just that, does he have what it takes to impress Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec?

What is SPERGO?
SPERGO is "a trendsetting streetwear and lifestyle brand headquartered in Philadelphia, PA." The brand was born out of Trey Brown's dream to encourage his peers to do more and dream bigger. This was born of the fact that Brown had become aware of the violence in his community and wanted to find a way to counter it.
Who is the founder?
At just 15, Trey Brown is the founder and CEO. He began the brand at age 12, where he purchased 16 T-shirts with his leftover birthday money and managed to sell out within a week. As per the website he "quickly realized that he could use his love of design and passion for the community to create a clothing brand that not only looked good but one that would inspire youth all over the world. SPERGO officially launched on Martin Luther King Day in 2018."
What is the cost and where to buy SPERGO from?
SPERGO has a range of clothing, such as hoodies, shirts and more. Clothing retails from $45 onwards and can be purchased on the brand's website or in-store.
Where is SPERGO now?
As per the brand's website, just within 36 months of the SPERGO sold over 30,000 units of merchandise. Apart from this celebrities like Meek Mill, Tierra Whack, Da Baby, Sean Combs, Eric Thomas, Shaquille O’Neil, Charles Barkley, Grant Hill, GHerbo and Ed Mylett have been seen wearing merchandise or supporting Brown's journey. As of last month, the brand opened two stores -- one at the King of Prussia mall in Pennsylvania and another at the Pentagon City Mall in Virginia.
Who will steal the deal?
Seeing that Brown is a young entrepreneur in the clothing and retail field, all eyes are on Daymond John to take the bait as he is probably the best person to help Brown's business grow as well as mentor the teen.
