About the speaker

This person is speaking at this event.
Maxine Bédat

Founder, Zady

Maxine is the Co-Founder of Zady, an ecommerce startup that aims to provide the highest quality products available and connect with the makers who produce them. She is also experienced in running The Bootstrap Project, a nonprofit dedicated to creating a sustainable platform for global crafts resulting in a thoughtfully curated collection of fashion and homeware focused on quality, craftsmanship and, most importantly, supply chain transparency. Zady evolved in reaction to the “fast fashion” epidemic investing in high quality clothes and goods means throwing less away in the long run.
