Kamaj Silva, the Sri Lankan Entrepreneur who wooed the judges of Dragon’s Den the popular Canadian Television show where budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires who are willing to invest their own cash to kick-start the businesses. Kamaj presented SNEAKERTUB, the world’s first subscription service for sneakers that delivers a new mystery shoe every month to their subscribers.
Kamaj moved to the UK in 2003 to complete his undergraduate studies and later moved to Canada in 2010 to pursue his Masters in the field of TV and Marketing. Before Kamaj’s SNEAKERTUB idea he was a promotions manager that worked on popular kid’s campaigns such as Peppa Pig, Donkey Kong Country, Franklin and many more. More importantly, the highlight of his previous career was his work on films starring Hollywood superstars like Jason Statham, Robin Williams and Keanu Reeves. Everything went well until the day the company he was working for suddenly decided to lay off 300 employees and amongst them was Kamaj and his team. On his way back, Kamaj made up his mind that it was time for a new chapter in his life. With a mere $700 in the bank, he started the world’s very first sneaker subscription box – SNEAKERTUB.
Kamaj has always been a huge fan of fashion and sneakers. He loved the idea of getting a mystery box at the end of the month and he soon applied this to sneakers when he learnt that there was nothing like it in the world. Kamaj presented his idea to the Dragons at the show and convinced all of them to get on board with him and his business and is on the verge of creating something big.
