Muvez, is an innovative indoor slipper brand founded by two brothers (Eric and Ryan Cruz) and a lifelong friend (Kevin Zamora). Their passion to innovate served as their driving force behind their mission to re-imagine indoor footwear and challenge industrial norms. Together they developed their concept from makeshift prototypes into a production-ready model. The bold startup has continued to rise to the occasion as they eclipsed $100K in sales within their first year and exceeded their Kickstarter goal by 225%. They hope this opportunity will show that entrepreneurship is a worthy endeavor regardless of your age or experience.
