Amazing things Andrea's made
About Andrea Madho
After a success career on Wall St and high-tech public relations, Andrea is using her personal fashion frustration to drive change in the way clothing is made. Andrea’s patent pending, co-invention of ondemand, localized micro-factory production for fashion brands, eliminates the need for sizes and inventory.

This just-enough advanced manufacturing process integrates logistics, analytics and robotics, it is the first end-to-end supply chain innovation in a century, and promises to significantly reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry while creating a 100% inclusive fashion cycle. Lab141 beat out 450+ applicants to be one of only 6 global companies competing in the 2019 Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge.

Recommendations

Elisa Miller-Out recommended Lab141 where Andrea is Co-Founder

My partner at Chloe Capital, Kathryn Cartini and I have known Andrea Madho, since 2017 and in that time I have seen her at many entrepreneurial and technology events both upstate and downstate New York, including when we both participated in Project Entrepreneur and Million Dollar Women Summit, earlier this year.



Andrea has demonstrated pure hustle in founding and growing Lab141 and we feel that not only is her company filling a real market need, with its promising technology and upside potential, she is a leader in the startup community and a mentor to other founders.



I wholeheartedly recommend Andrea and am convinced that she and her company will do us proud.

Shenae Simmons CEO at Carte DM recommended Lab141 where Andrea is Co-Founder

I have known Andrea since 2016 through her active participation in NYC Business Solutions workshops. She and I were members of the first WE NYC (Women Entrepreneurs of NYC) cohort program. As an ambassador for Ladies Get Paid, I have a hand in helping women advocate for themselves at work through a private social network, classes, and a bit of activism. With interests akin to Ladies Get Paid, Andrea has become a well-respected member of the female founder community and startup world. Not only is she wonderful at networking and public speaking, but she is also hard-working and resourceful. Her company, Lab 141, is the first on-demand manufacturer to be inclusive of all shapes and sizes. Besides solving the ever-present problem of inconsistent clothing sizes for women, the patented process is fast and efficient. More than just a wonderful friend and colleague, Andrea is someone who I strongly believe to be an important asset to the Ready, Set, Raise program.

Dave Weiner Advisor at Shimmy Technologies, Inc. recommended Lab141 where Andrea is Co-Founder

I highly recommend Lab141 to the StartFast accelerator for two reasons.

First, Lab141 is developing a cutting-edge technology platform from which Brands could benefit. In short, Lab141 looks to establish on-demand, made-to-measure, U.S. apparel manufacturing with 48-hour turnarounds. While some Brands are already proficient at sourcing, that expertise involves labor-intensive methods. Conversely, Lab141 could offer a roadmap into automated, personalized production, which would drive deeper relationships with end-customers. This fits nicely with Brands’ initiative of expanding their DTC presence. Also, Brands would benefit from reduced supply chain costs and faster prototyping times.

Second, Lab141 is run by smart entrepreneurs who would add vitality to any team. Both co-founders, Andrea & Philip, bring technical expertise in fashion technology and propose a forward-looking platform. Further, Lab141 has relevant pending patents and key academic research relationships.
