If you’ve got a problem that needs solving, chances are others have the same problem–and the solution could spark a business for you.

Just ask Angie and David Porter, co-founders of Furminator Inc., who invented a tool that gets at pets’ undercoats to solve the problem of shedding. “It hit a chord with pet owners, and it addressed that problem,” says David.

Today, their de-shedding product line is sold at stores like PetSmart and Petco, pushing annual sales to $20 million.
