Most Creative People

Neil Parikh turned the mattress industry on its head when he and four friends founded Casper. Their mission: to make mattress shopping an enjoyable experience. Casper has found success with fun branding and advertising, convenient mattress-in-a-box packaging, and free returns.

Parikh was accepted into medical school at the age of 17, but he left school to launch Casper in 2014. Before Casper, Parikh worked on robotics at NASA, co-authoring three patents in his year there, and developed ways of detecting toxins in water using bacterial sensors. He is also cofounder of WaterWalla, an organization that helps underdeveloped urban communities gain access to clean water.
