Faux Pas is a hybrid "Indie Fashion" marketplace and netflix for fashionistas. Instead of getting DVD's in the mail, our customer gets trendy, one-of-a-kind fashion pieces that she can wear, enjoy, return, and then exchange for the next item on her que. Faux Pas offers shopaholics everywhere the ability to shop continuously, have endless variety in their wardrobe, relieve the environment, yet still keep more money in her pocket. Unlimited outfits, unlimited exchanges: one flat monthly rate.
Entrepreneurs Tell All
Some choice wisdom from these rockstar entrepreneurs:
Josh Resnikoff: Co-Founder of Cuppow
Brendan Shea: Co-Founder of Recover Green Roofs
“Conduct yourself like a Fortune 500 Company. People will respond to whatever you tell them you are.”
"A startup company owner wears a lot of hats…but don’t try to wear all of the hats…they won’t all look good on you."
My take on why these guys are suceeding? People buy products that imbue them with a sense of self-worth. Josh and Brendan are just further proof that people don't buy what you do they buy why you do it.
