Presenting Companies:

Naadam’ssupply chain operates at the intersection between profit and sustainability. We source raw materials while bypassing traditional trade layers through a strategic investment in sustainability. We support the livliehood of the people we source our raw material from by allocating profit share into micro-economic development. In turn our production improves both qualitatively and quantitatively. Our raw material costs beat our top competitors by nearly 25% and our finished good quality competes directly with market share leaders but under prices them by over 30%.

TomboyX is a way of life brand that creates, curates and cultivates clothing for women with tomboy style. We create unique styles that fit a ‘real’ woman’s body. We curate accessories to further enhance that style. And we go beyond cultivating community, we seek out current-day heroes, pioneers and strong women to amplify an existing movement in our world. Our products reflect our values – they are ethically sourced and manufactured, styled for a tomboy, and fit for a woman. We create clothing that fits well, with an attitude and style that aptly represents the tomboy inside every woman.tomboyTheShelf is a scalable platform where apparel brands create meaningful and actionable campaigns with relevant bloggers. Our platform deeply integrates with the blog content to accurately classify the blogger as well as to measure the effectiveness of a campaign.
