I know what you're probably thinking, "wait, he's just a kid!". Born into a long line of entrepreneurs, I've always enjoyed watching ideas grow and love to come up with new ideas too! The idea for Ornament Anchor came from a problem my family and I had with our own ornaments.

 

One day, one of our extra special ornaments fell off our tree and broke. We were really sad because it had special meaning to our family and was irreplaceable. I thought- these silly hooks just don't stay put! There HAS to be a better way to keep our ornaments safe on trees. That's when Ornament Anchor was born.

I've grown up alongside some really talented inventors so I turned to my Mom, Dad and brother, and we worked together to create a few prototypes until I felt it was ready to launch. I'm super excited to bring Ornament Anchor to life and help others save their precious ornaments!

Help me help pets.

My passion in life is animals. Ever since I was super young I've had a fascination with all of life's creatures, from extinct animals like my favorite dinosaur the Utahraptor to today's endangered animals like the Gharial. One very special animal in my life is my dog, Zara. We rescued her from North Shore Animal League and she's been such an important part of my love and understanding of animals.

This is why I've decided to give a portion of my proceeds to help shelter pets like Zara, so they too can find a forever home. My goal is to help as many animals in need as I can. When I grow up, I hope to expand this to other species, like endangered animals.

Big plans 

In 2019 I was lucky enough to make it into the "Shark Tank" with my family. It was such a great experience and really inspired me to follow my dreams to bring my product, Ornament Anchor, to life! I'm excited to see what kinds of adventures Ornament Anchor takes me on-- who knows maybe it will even take me back to "The Tank!".

Press Overview

Ayaan is an 12 year old kid-entrepreneur born and raised in Shelton, CT. Ayaan and his family are known in the area for being the local family who made it into “the tank” for their product, Kudo Banz. Following in his family’s footsteps, Ayaan has big dreams of going back to Shark Tank for his invention, Ornament Anchor.

Originally invented for his school’s invention convention, Ayaan Naqvi created the idea for Ornament Anchor when he was in 4th grade, at only 10 years old. Coming from an entrepreneurial family, Ayaan knew he was onto something when his booth was overwhelmed by adults asking him where they could purchase his Ornament Anchors. Ayaan went on to win first place in his classroom. Now with the help of his older brother, Mickey and Mom, Amanda, he’s following his dreams of bringing Ornament Anchor into the hands of consumers worldwide.
