Tiffany Krumins was a nanny when she invented her children's medical dispenser, AVA the Elephant. Listen to her inspirational journey from nanny to ABC TV's Shark Tank, to now owner of a multimillion-dollar business.
As a nanny, Krumins was faced with dispensing medicine multiple times a day to a boy with Down syndrome and was struck by how the boy became terrified at the mention of medicine time. So, she invented a fun, elephant-shaped medicine dispenser. Problem solved!
Krumins took her invention to ABC TV's Shark Tank and received a $50,000 investment from business superstar Barbara Corcoran, and since that time she and Corcoran have built a fast-growing, multi-million dollar business with international distribution.
