She won the pitch competition with an innovative woman’s product
On the show “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome,” entrepreneurs pitch in a head-to-head competition to “The Funderdome” (a live studio audience) for the chance to win up to $100K in capital. The pitch that gets the most votes wins the money. Before the winner is announced, both competitors get the chance to “Cash Out” for a lower sum of money.
Tanya Tibbs of Roswell, Georgia, pitched her product – The V-Smart Bar – in the Funderdome. Brandon Andrews of Values Partnerships (an agency that helps bring diverse entrepreneurs to the show) sat down with Tanya after the show for an interview.

The bar has a very powerful ingredient in it called goldenseal which is known to help cleanse the impurities out of your blood. I know that most common feminine hygiene products offer chemicals and perfumes which can cause irritation, dryness, and odor. I wanted to offer young girls/women an alternative non-fragrance line of soaps and womb wash for a holistic approach to feminine care.
