In 2016, Mike returned to Minnesota after spending a couple of years living on the beach in North Carolina running a company that had been featured on Shark Tank. Years of selling products to major national retailers convinced him that it was time to start his own business, and Funatic was born. Beginning with a small range of novelty socks, the Funatic assortment has grown to 400+ designs that can be found in thousands of independent stores and boutiques nationwide and on Amazon. Whether Funatic is making custom socks for other organizations, or creating hilarious giftable sock designs, Mike is happiest seeing people laugh at Funatic’s sarcastic, snarky, and fun novelty socks!
