The rest of the judges dropped one by one until Siminoff made his way out of the tank and back into the world - where the company, now called Ring, reached a $460 million valuation by a year ago (the most of any company ever on Shark Tank).

Acquiring the companies such as Ring and Blink, advocates that Amazon is planning some ambitious steps that could complete through healthy partnership. The company also attracted Amazon, which first invested through its "Alexa Fund", a venture capital arm that provides funding for voice technology innovation. Amazon invested in Ring previous year through its venture capital arm, the Alexa Fund. Amazon uses its Alexa fund to support businesses that develop apps for the Echo and Alexa.

Branson described in a 2015 blog post what he liked about the company. Ring's CEO and founder Jamie Siminoff appeared on "Shark Tank" pushing his product, though he did not get any bites. "Unbowed, he went on to develop the product and the business and just raised a substantial fundraising which I joined".
