(BPRW) Black PR Wire’s August Power Profiler – Alexiou Gibson, from Entrepreneur to Business Mogul
(Black PR Wire) Alexiou Gibson is the epitome of a successful black business owner who has grown his company into a multi-million-dollar business. This makes it perfectly fitting that Black PR Wire profiles this consummate professional during Black Business Month.
Gibson is the CEO and Founder of the Transformation Factory (TTF), a Florida-based business that produces a line of flavored sea moss.
The Grand Bahama native appeared on the popular show, Shark Tank, and made an unforgettable impression. Shark Tank, of course, is the platform that allows entrepreneurs to present and pitch their business ideas to successful moguls in the hopes of scoring an investment in their concepts and ideas. Gibson was able to stand in front of powerful entrepreneurs such as Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner and guest “shark” Kevin Hart, and speak on their level.
In his pitch to the “sharks,” Gibson said his company had $3.5 million in sales in just 11 months into its formation, with a 35 percent profit margin. He explained that it was all direct to consumer and 100 percent online. Gibson’s pitch worked and sold “sharks” Cuban and Hart - resulting in TTF receiving a $600,000 Shark Tank deal. Scoring the Shark Tank deal was a big deal! This meant that after years of hard work and dedication, Gibson was well on his way to seeing his company’s mission come to fruition.
