Spotlight On … Ten Thirty One Productions

Last October, Melissa Carbone scored the biggest deal in Shark Tank history for her company, Ten Thirty One Productions. Investor Mark Cuban saw great potential in her company’s attractions — the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride and Great Horror Campout. A couple months later, we asked the CEO and founder about her formula for winning.

Fast forward one year, and Business Insider catches up with Carbone to “see how she’s used the Shark to push forward her plan for total domination of the American Halloween market.”

It’s been a wild ride, and it’s not slowing down soon. Read about what markets she’s tackling next, who else is investing in her company and how Cuban is helping her stay focused and not “drown in opportunity.”

“The ultimate long-term goal is to have a Ten Thirty One attraction in every major metropolitan area in the United States,” Carbone tells Business Insider.
