While in College, Lee Renshaw was traveling 1.5 hours to school each way and would often stay at his girlfriend’s house or stay on campus on late nights rather than make the trek home. To cope with the constant unknown of where he would end up each night, he packed and lived out of his duffle bag. He quickly became frustrated with the wrinkled clothes and had trouble finding his stuff. He set out to develop a solution that would solve his problem. After many late nights learning how to sew his first prototypes, he came up with a portable shelving system built into his bag that could be hung to keep his stuff organized on the go. He pitched his business to the Dragons on CBC’s Dragon’s Den on the premier episode and won the Dragons approval with a 100% hit rate!
