According to its CEO and founder, Iskra Tsenkova, a San Diego resident, she made her way to Los Angeles last summer to pitch her company to a panel of investors. Tsenkova was Christmas shopping with her husband when she learned that her business was chosen to appear on the show. She screamed for her husband in the dressing room, who rushed out in a panic and they both began crying and laughing in celebration of such an over-whelming and joyful moment.
“Being on Shark Tank has been a dream of mine ever since the inception of Angel Shave Club in 2016,” Tsenkova said.“We have auditioned for the show three times and I am so excited for the world to finally learn more about our brand and to see what the future holds for us after the show airs.”
The monthly subscription shave club, which caters exclusively to women, was generated from a realization Tsenkova had while showering and comparing her razor to her husband’s. After she saw there was no difference between the two blades, aside from a higher price tag, the Bulgarian-born entrepreneur felt a calling to provide women with an affordable, convenient solution to their shaving needs. In the quintessential spirit of pursuing the American Dream, Angel Shave Club was born.
In addition to building the company from the ground up, Tsenkova continues her mission of empowering women by donating a portion of all sales from Angel Shave Club to help the fight for gender equality and provide products, education, and jobs to girls and women in need across the globe.
