About the Startup:
Describe your product in 3 words.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Inventor: My wife and I both have long hair. And we have several pets in the house. Just try to imagine the number of times our drain has clogged over the years from all that hair and the amount of time and money we had to spend to keep it clear. There had to be a better way. It took years of brainstorming to come up with, what we think, is the perfect solution.
What makes your product special?
Inventor: First and foremost… it works great. If it solved the problem of clogged drains for us and for our friends, we’re certain it will do the same for you. It’s made of durable, high-quality silicone that should last as long as your bathroom does. No cheap plastics that can crack and bend over time. We took the idea to the crowdfunding world and the response was overwhelming. We’re proud of this little product because we feel it’s a clever solution to a real problem out there. The only downside is that plumbers and drain cleaner manufacturers may not like us very much after this.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Inventor: The best part was seeing the product come to life, so to speak. It’s our baby now and every person that it helps along the way will bring a big old smile to our faces. The positive feedback from early supporters and early testers has motivated us to get TubShroom in as many drains as possible. We’ve learned so much about the process, about ourselves, and about new ways we can potentially improve the bathroom experience down the road.
