Yuen Yung recommended Plushkies where Juan is Co-Founder

When I first met Ricardo and Plushkies during this years Austin Startup Week I immediately thought it was a fun and innovative concept and asked him to meet again to learn more about his business. Since then we have met a couple more times in which I have provided feedback and support.

I believe in the educational value of the product and the purpose it serves. Prove of this is that Plushkies is already getting interest, support and orders from Austin I.B. schools and Ricardo has been invited to give workshops in several other schools in the community.

I believe success in these schools could equally be replicated in multiple other schools. In this sense Plushkies brings a creative approach to solving the real problem of raising global kids who are appreciative of diversity and feel comfortable in multicultural environments.
