Some companies that appear on the show have not achieved great success, and the Define Bottle was one of them. Sometimes businesses don’t succeed because of many reasons. Sometimes, the deal falls through after the founders say yes on camera. Or, as you’ll see, sometimes things happen to the founders themselves, and they choose to abandon the business. Anything is possible. However,  Define Bottle went out of business in 2016. And the product is no longer available in the market.
