Hello and welcome to real -- I'm Rebecca Jarvis here in New York City and here's what's happening today. -- -- Line with the man behind two multi billion dollar tech ventures Jack Dorsey -- -- in it for the long haul with his mobile payment company square. And he tells me all about his new way to get small companies some cash also ahead. A shark tank deal and then no deal the brains behind -- holly is here to explain. This morning mobile payment company square announcing a plan to give small companies thousands of dollars to help them build out their businesses. It's called square capital and according to CEO Jack Dorsey. It lets -- start -- to get cash without dealing with a backache. I sat down with the man who brought you Twitter and now square for a one on one about the new venture the future of square and much more Nicholas. But the biggest -- for any seller is access to capital doesn't matter how -- are helping you are. Just getting access to capital to grow so we wanted to build a very simple service that works right and square register. Seat unless we're registering you run your business -- and then you have the option to take in advance of working capital. And you. You can use that to buy inventory can buy equipment in this particular case Kathy Karpin York city. They opened the store and -- terminal and some six location. And the way this is payback there's just swiping your customer's credit cards we -- -- design something that actually worked in the course of your business. -- -- case -- Kathy crappy they are literally paying this money this advance back. Two square by a percentage of their sales over time. Just by swiping their customers' records just by doing a business. Event it's been. A lot of small businesses will go out and trying get a loan which can take. Lots and lots of time -- can be very time consuming and you don't know what the end game will be you don't know you're gonna get the money -- not here. You're guaranteed to get the money.

I think one of the biggest. Aspects of this was I was school. And a lot of venture capitalists and business model for six years and then became the most profitable company in the world so. These things happen very quickly put in us essentially carefully in this capital to grow just like our businesses just like ourselves you. You -- -- on people's hands. And the people running these businesses and an experiment succeed. -- you don't come on real bids without doing our real -- rapid fire first it was buffet and human.

Okay now entered US startup that went into the shark tank and got a deal on the show. And it fell apart. The company is in -- holly they make cinnamon rolls but there's a twist. These rules are begin and there are also lactose and cholesterol free and here to tell us all about the company in life after shark tank is -- -- -- the -- in pockets and I thank you Larry and thank -- -- -- -- I have to say these look delicious eye on its face he would never know they were eight. That is absolutely the trick about it so so what kidnapped. You know it's what's not. -- them they have there's no dairy in no way -- them therefore making them. Making them very free make them lactose free and also making making them cholesterol yeah. And less calories and you got the deal and sharks that's correct we we took the deal on the show. And we didn't follow -- I can't disclose any details why. But I can say that we took -- we took the deal and so the Robert and even though he didn't sign the deal without -- we didn't and the deal with them. And his team has been more than amazing helping us out reaching out even before the -- -- and we knew. They knew they didn't have to deal with us. They reached out and -- super helpful enough that they can do anything to help us which was fantastic I was blown away by that so maybe that's because they really believe that you. Maybe. I think he's just a very very nice and Smart -- -- that's so take us behind the scenes -- shark tank you're on the show. Big yet. You get the deal yes that was also -- thing I got that adrenaline rush was really -- the was. Going on there it felt like jumping out of -- -- -- kind of because that's what it felt like but being on the show us some of the cameras term we actually come down quite a bit I figured an island just helps you. You know. Not realizing that there's millions of people watching and how much does life change afterwards and a lot that the -- -- of the show air we headlines out the door. There were people standing in line for sixty minutes waiting to place -- -- -- and then another 25 minutes until the rules were prepared. We had a hostile -- -- the line and just talk to people and -- them on the doing everybody was just amazing celebrating everybody and I -- yet exactly. An outage trial that begins sentiment -- absolutely so there is the terms tucked into effect of the real thing it's really incredible why -- get. -- and well I'm an ethical -- -- I I would be in twelve years ago and just for ethical reasons. But there's so many other reasons right now -- -- one of the strongest reasons -- to environmental reasons there is no way we can sustain our environment by relying on animal products. That's just not happening. Okay expect and make this taste delicious -- and I I wouldn't know that it was without. Be what I would consider to be fundamental ingredients of -- cinnamon girl.
