You’ve seen Mark Cuban invest major amounts of money into products that were pitched on Shark Tank. But two men decided to forgo Shark Tank and cold-email Cuban with a pitch to invest in their exciting start-up. Former Blue Origin engineer Tim Ellis and SpaceX engineer Jordan Noone knew they needed funds and decided to cold-email Cuban in an effort to secure funds from the wealthy businessman who has a net worth of over $3.3 billion. Somehow it worked.

The two men needed capital and sought help from Mark Cuban to fund their 3D-printed rockets. “We actually raised our seed round from Mark Cuban — which was a cold email — a week after we said we are starting the company,” said Ellis. “Yeah, we cold-emailed Mark Cuban with the email tagline, ‘Space is sexy: 3D printing an entire rocket.'”
