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.
