Did you see Chula Vista resident and USD Grad on Funderdome last night with Steve Harvey with her invention, the Monster Towel!
From the press release:
University of San Diego and Francis Parker alumnus, Janice Chernitzky, inventor of the Monster Towel will be on Steve Harvey's "Funderdome" Sunday, Sept. 17. The show airs at 9:00 p.m. on the ABC Television Network. "Funderdome" is a seed-funding competition reality series in which two budding entrepreneurs go head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products or companies. Chernitzky will be promoting her Monster Towel, the world's biggest towel at 100 square feet.
Monster Towel, LLC is a family-based San Diego business that was launched through a Kickstarter campaign in 2014. The idea for the towel came to be when Chernitzky was at Pacific Beach in San Diego and noticed that no one had a big enough beach towel. After checking the market and finding a range of beach items, she didn't find the towel she had envisioned so she launched her product concept and business. Now, she's made it to a popular show to seek additional funding.
