About this event

Alex Furmansky is an American entrepreneur and businessman. He is the founder of Budsies, the company which turns artwork and photographs into 3D custom stuffed animals. Budsies has brought to life over 25,000 custom plush creations and recently launched Petsies, which turns photos of people's pets into plush dopplegangers. Furmansky's prior venture, Sparkology, is the invite-only online dating service for 20,000+ NYC successful young professionals.

Furmansky appeared on the April 10, 2015 episode of the reality competition television series Shark Tank to pitch Budsies. While he turned down an offer from the "sharks," Budsies benefited from the publicity and raised venture capital financing shortly after taping. Furmansky is a contributing writer to the Huffington Post and Inc. magazine, and he has been interviewed on CNBC and the Fox Business Network.
