If you’ve watched enough episodes of “Shark Tank” by now, you know that sometimes most good products are a mixture of two individual elements that go well together. They may be the most humble of things, but they prove revolutionary when put together. For Roq Innovation, that was certainly the case.
Roq Innovation may have impressed the masses and a few celebrities too, but could it impress Mark Cuban, Diamond John, Kevin O’Leary, Laurie Greiner, Guest Shark and Peter Jones? Let’s find out!

What is Roq Innovation?
Roq Innovation is a brand that creates handmade everyday things to make life a little easier. Their successful product, HEADLIGHTZ™ is a beanie with a built-in LED light that is a multi-purpose wake-up tool. As mentioned in O Oprah Magazine – “Are you one of those people who likes to walk at night without being hit by a minibus? These little blocks have a built-in, rechargeable LED light that lasts up to eight solid hours.” Now that’s a powerful move!
Who is the founder?
Raquel Graham is the founder of Roq Innovation. She received an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and a BA in History with a minor in Economics from Wesleyan University. She was a marketing expert and consultant and worked with companies to build their brands. ROQ Innovation started in 2014, with the goal of creating products that make life easier. “We develop, solve and innovate solutions every day to meet the needs of our families. I enjoy providing solutions to make anyone’s life a little easier. We all need that.” She said, as mentioned on the site.
While NEKZ, an alternative to children’s scarves, was their first product, it was HEADLIGHTZ™ that helped build their brand name, having made it to Opera’s O List.
What is the cost and where to buy?
While the brand itself has a range of products, you can buy HEADLIGHTZ™ for $19.99 onwards. HEADLIGHTZ™ also has a headband version that retails at $24.99.
Where is Roq Innovation now?
The Roq Innovation feature in Oprah Winfrey magazine has definitely helped push the brand to new heights. The brand also recently appeared on View Your Deal during the holiday season and shared a post about the same. The caption reads – you know it’s going to be a great week when Mondays start showing up on @viewyourdeal! Shop the seasonal sale only for a limited time through the view the deal link in our bio. Thanks to the awesome team at @theviewabc and viewyourdeal for helping us spread the holiday deals and cheer! “
Who will steal the deal?
It’s hard to know who might steal the deal, because it all boils down to the numbers. If Roq Innovation has sales to back it up, Kevin O’Leary might be the one to add it to his list of Mr. Wonderful curiosities.
