I'm so thrilled to congratulate my client, Nicole Bassett, winner of $50,000 from the #EBW2020 Funders Circle. After just a little bit of arm-twisting on my part, Nicole entered the competition and was selected as one of 7 women-led businesses for the accelerator, and then went on to win the pitch competition. I feel like a proud mama! There's nothing more satisfying for me than to see my clients have massive success.
Nicole is such a special person, and her company is leading the way for apparel brands to step into a circular economy. I had no idea that apparel is one of the top 5 most polluting industries in the world, and Nicole is on a mission to change that forever. Her business, The Renewal Workshop, is the ONLY COMPANY IN THE WORLD right now bringing in the #circulareconomy in the apparel industry.
Check out this video we made after the awards and hear how Nicole is redefining her industry and what she thinks it takes to be a powerful feminine leader in today's market.
