Putting the power of creating a world-class brand in the hands of the many.

I'm an outsider to the world of fashion.

I come from technology, where I spent the better part of the last decade helping manufacturers understand their production floor in real-time.

Being at the ground level of these brands' operations during this time exposed me to rapid changes in the ways they operated.

The last decade saw a new generation of consumers rapidly defining novel ways they want to interact with brands they resonate with: from retail to web, mobile, social. Ecommerce answered the call, allowing brands to quickly build a storefront and sell directly to consumers, turning traditional distribution on its head.

My co-founder Assaf Raviv's pioneering brand, pq Eyewear, was on the bleeding edge of these trends, testing the market with new modalities such as 3D printing and augmented reality. His 30 years of experience building private label brands exposed him to a simple truth: amazing ideas happen in an instant, bringing them to life is the hard part.

The status quo

Despite the rapid increase of brands and the digital tools available to run them, the mechanisms of how brands source and develop their products have stayed rooted in the past:

  • Finding reliable, high-quality suppliers is difficult, requiring going to trade shows or testing various suppliers on Alibaba.
  • Developing product is incredibly inefficient with months of travel and back-and-forth over email to suppliers.
  • Ordering product comes with a lack of transparency, with hidden commissions and little knowledge on the true cost of your product.

The pandemic exacerbated all these issues, turning thousands of samples into thousands of PDFs, as brands and suppliers moved their process completely online.

Buyers and creators are used to this status quo. But as an outsider looking in, the opportunity to bring speed, ease and transparency to this process became crystal clear.

Badaboom!

Today, we are introducing brands to Badaboom, a modern way to bring high-quality private label products to market in seconds.

We have a mission to put the power of creating a world-class brand in the hands of the many.
