Losode.com making an impression in Virgin Media’s #VOOM 2016 Competition by creating a bridge between Africa and the World
Less than 2% of African fashion designers trade globally and Losode wants to change that!
Losode.com, a pioneering fashion start-up with headquartered in London, is making an impression at the top of the leader board in the #VOOM 2016 competition.
The #VOOM competition takes place over the course of 14 weeks and sees competitors from all over the UK and Ireland competing for their share of the winnings. Voting is done by the public – viewers watch each pitch and then vote for their favourites, helping to propel the start-ups and small businesses they love to success.
The company’s founder, Ade Adeyemi, eloquently explains her concept behind the fashion start-up in the company’s pitch video, explaining not only the core concept behind Losode.com, but also the differences between the company and other online fashion portals. A significant part of that difference is the company’s social enterprise aspect. Losode is firmly focused on empowering people through entrepreneurialism via a marketplace for African designers to a global audience.
Losode.com is truly a social enterprise, in a sense that has too rarely been seen on the global stage. Losode is set to disrupt the African fashion industry positively and enable sustainable social, economic and environmental development in Africa through fashion and style. A model Ade is certain can be extended to other developing countries.
Public voting closes on the 23 May, so supporters must get their votes and pledges in soon to keep Losode.com on the leader board in the start up category and propel them to the top 5 in the crowdfunding round.
