2016 CKW LUXE STAR AWARDS
THE SHINING STAR AWARD SHARED HONOREE
Sean Gilmore: A Young Inventor and Entrepreneur Who Turns Ideas into Solutions
CKW Luxe is proud to announce that Sean Gilmore is a shared honoree for The Shining Star Award. This award recognizes the young people who have made a significant impact on their community through innovation or entrepreneurship. It shows our appreciation for those who start small and end up big letting their stars shine.
Sean Gilmore is a young entrepreneur who had an idea that he thought would benefit members of his community. He took that idea and made into a reality. As the inventor of the “Sleep-over Bed Tent,” Sean found a way for kids with limited space to host their friends during sleepovers in a fun and innovative way. He was only ten years old when he came up with the original idea. Now a senior at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory School, Sean has written a book about the experience, holds the patent to his invention, and owns his own company. In keeping with his entrepreneurial spirit, Sean has been a frequent speaker on inventing, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy at numerous special events for teen entrepreneurs and young inventors. CKW Luxe would like to congratulate Sean for seeing his idea through to the benefit of so many and for being our Shining Star Award shared honoree.
