Rob Law, inventor of the trunki ride-on suitcase for kids, is riding high on success the experts said would never happen. According to the Daily Mail, Mr. Law appeared on the BBC show Dragon’s Den, where a successful entrepreneur, a tycoon and a business leader all told Mr. Law that the invention was worthless.
The panel declined a £100,000, but now may have egg on their faces. Since appearing on the show, Mr. Law has sold over 85,000 in trunkis in over twenty countries. The trunkis have a retail price of £25 and with airport waits on the rise sales of the child-sized portable seats show no sign of slowing. Says law about the ordeal “It just goes to show you should never give up.”
