FINESSE is Zara meets Netflix - a vertically integrated fashion house leveraging AI on big data & community feedback to predict trends, forecast demand, and optimize distribution, producing hit sell-outs every time in record time & eliminating the guesswork and overproduction inherent to fashion today. Founded straight out of Stanford and backed by top investors across deep tech & consumer - including Lux Capital, MaC Ventures, Hoxton Ventures & the Sequoia Scout Fund - FINESSE is creating the new age of fashion.
The fashion industry is rapidly changing and one largely untouched by technology - particularly well-applied deep technology. Bankruptcies and supply-chain implosions across the COVID-19 pandemic and before have made the archaic state of the industry clearer than ever. FINESSE is poised to disrupt this entire industry and change it for the better by doing away with the shameless overproduction that has rendered fashion the second largest polluter in the world. By taking out the guesswork out of fashion through the use of sophisticated big data & AI, we create a new generation of fashion that is sustainable, efficient and interactive.
Our first two drops sold out within just 5 hours each at which point we decided to raise our Seed round.
We're invested in by top investors across deep tech & consumer including Lux Capital, MaC Venture Capital, Hoxton Ventures, Mango Capital & SGH Capital. We're additionally invested in & advised by unicorn founders and industry experts including the CEO of Collective Health, Co-Founder of FabFitFun, Head of Engineering at Twitter, Head of Data Science at ASOS and Stanford professors.
This is an extremely early engineering team that is built from scratch. As such, you will be owning full responsibility over the code you produce. Additionally, each process is highly integrated into all departments throughout FINESSE - our tech touches product, marketing and supply-chain and consequently, we listen intently to each side of the business. Work is split between 1-week and 2-week sprints and larger coding projects and architectural improvements.
A very large amount of extremely heterogenous and constantly changing data. We are building out a system that pinpoints the very essence of trends in the same way quantitative traders track and evaluate stocks.
We are an incredibly passionate and daring culture that is not afraid to stand up for what's right. Fashion is both fantasy and reality at the same time - it is the single-most powerful tool for self-expression. Consequently, self-expression is extremely important to our culture and always welcome. We think outside of the box and break down walls — it's what the archaic industry of fashion needs. Diversity of thought and recognition of merit are core pillars of the FINESSE culture.
