Noah Silverman and Yuki Kinoshita, both 22, created a prototype for the world's first dog bed for humans just a month before graduating from the University of British Columbia in May 2022. Their company Plufl, which started as a passion project in their dorm room, has since gone viral, already generating more than $1 million in revenue.
But where did the name Plufl come from? "We were just sitting in a room with a bunch of our friends throwing around adjectives to describe the perfect bed we were trying to create," Kinoshita said. "The words plush and fluffy were the two that stuck with us." Plufl, a combination of those two words, was thus launched with support from 799 backers on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter.
Silverman and Kinoshita had an appearance on Shark Tank in October 2022, where they secured an impressive $200,00 deal from Sharks Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner.
