"Helping Brand Owners Navigate Cross Functional Processes & Distributed, Outsourced Teams to Launch" 


YOUR PRODUCT to MARKET 

"Consumer Direct & Business to Business"


Launching a new consumer brand can be daunting, particularly when multiple domestic and global production sources and facilities must be integrated with design, market channels and distribution!! 

Through our Brand Launch Platform we help new brand owners and product launchers of consumer and sewn goods affordably source and navigate their way through the product lifecyle- inception through delivery. 

Our stable of global designers, product engineers, materials sources and production agents and assembly houses are hand picked by our Founder and his partners, best in class. We help match the right ones for our clients.

Definition: In industry, product lifecycle management (PLM) is the process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from concept, through design, engineering and production assembly, to market service and sales, to disposal of the manufactured products

Supply Chain Alert: The textile apparel business is a world apart from the corporate sector. Its product portfolio is moreover diverse, its supply chain more complex, and its consumers more demanding and fickle than its counterparts in perhaps any other industry.


Even creating a single stock keeping unit (SKU) is a multinational, multi-faceted task, requiring the skills and knowledge of professionals from every aspect of the industry: merchandisers, buyers, designers, pattern makers and, increasingly, information technologists."
