This NYC Startup Raised The Highest Valuation Ever on Shark Tank

Upon buying a piece of luggage you know that at some point your zipper is going to either break off, get stuck or simply just stop working. Even with the advent of “smart luggage” there seems to be an outdated aspect: the zipper. Getting around this seems impossible until the new luggage company Trunkster has recently come on to the scene. They have revolutionized the suitcase with a rolltop feature, which includes the standard smart luggage features (scale, charger, GPS, Etc.). With their reimagined luggage they have already made a splash with recent Shark Tank fame with the highest valuation yet.

Cofounder Gaston Blanchet and Jesse Potash tell AlleyWatch about how their product will “roll”  in the cash as well as how they got to where they are today.

Tell us about the product or service.

Trunkster is the world’s first and only zipperless rolltop luggage featuring a revolutionary sliding door. The suitcase integrates smart features like USB charging, a digital scale and location tracking.

How is it different?
