After an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank and making a deal with Shark Kevin O’Leary, the company grew by 600% (in their first year) making the business a 20 million dollar company.

Co-Founder and COO, Wicked Good Cupcakes
Scott Noonan has spent over 20 years in the fast-paced world of technology working for large enterprises and small start-ups. In 2015, he left the technology world to join his wife and daughter at Wicked Good Cupcakes, a company that began in their home kitchen that has since become the number one shipper of cupcakes direct to consumers in the country. Having participated in the inception of multiple start-ups, Scott has learned to bring the mentality of “moving at internet speed” to every organization he’s been involved with. He believes that to survive in today’s business environment, one must learn to be flexible and be able to not only keep up with the ever-changing consumer landscape, but figure out how to stay ahead of it as well.
