Fleek (YC W22) is a B2B Marketplace for wholesale second hand fashion. We enable Gen-Z resellers and retail stores to buy from vintage clothing suppliers from around the world.
We are reimagining the supply chain of used clothing and empowering a whole new generation of sellers. At Fleek, we keep it circular, trendy, and sustainable.
Our Seed round was led by A16Z (Andressen-Horowitz) and we were part of YC’W22. We have COO of Shopify, Harley F. and the CEO of Ancestory.com, Deb Liu (She built out Facebook Marketplace) as angels.
Fleek is a set of funky individuals who find unity in diversity with the single mission of helping sustainability, promoting circular fashion while building a beautiful product experience.
Our 10 people team consists of ex-YC founders leading our engineering effort, ex-Uber & Doordash folks leading our operations and supply strategy. Alongside our Growth team is lead by folks who went to Cambridge, Oxford and UC Berkeley.
We employ AWS as our cloud provider and use technologies in OpenSearch, DataFlow and Lambda, Video streaming to build on top.
Our philosophy is to reuse where possible and innovate when we can add value.
Now that Fleek has a consistent user base of ~ 1000 MAU (each spending upwards of $1000/mo); there’s a need to evolve from an MVP to a product that can support scale & personalization.
Fast - we move fast because there are small business owner who count on us. We have a duty to ship solutions for them and we can’t be lazy about it. Big things can also happen fast https://patrickcollison.com/fast
