Solving the problem of waste for the $1.7 trillion global fashion industry

WOVN was built from scratch in the Founders Factory Studio, by Founders Julia Brucher and Lindsay Trombley.

Whilst in the studio, WOVN pivoted from a platform enabling influencers to create their own fashion collections to a demand prediction model for brands, on a mission to help brands increase sell through and reduce waste.

Since launch, WOVN have partnered with brands including Triumph, In the Frow and Little Dots and are now working with M&S on another pilot to test their new range. WOVN also hired a top grad from M&S as a secondee for 9 months to support business development. With these successes under their belt, Julia and Lindsay are looking to expand to the US and beyond.

"Being part of Founders Factory has been a fundamental element in our success every step of the way. The team is world-class, and their support has been invaluable, both in terms of hands-on assistance and coaching. They've helped us smash through more obstacles than we can count. We're so happy that we made the decision to come here, and we would do it again in a heartbeat."
