Let’s meet startup, FreshRents: Endless fashion sharing possibilities in your city!
Founders: Samia Syed / Rehan Iqbal
In a few sentences, tell us what your startup is all about!:
FreshRents is an online rental platform that allows lenders and borrowers to come together and share fashion with each other. Sort of like an AirBnb for clothes. Think about how many items you have in your closet that you hardly ever wear? FreshRents can allow you rent them out and make some extra cash. Or if you have a special event coming but don’t want to spend a ton of money on something you’ll only wear once, why not borrow something for a fraction of the retail value from someone in your community.
December 2016 and we are currently in the growth stage.
Let us know a bit about your team, who are the key team members?:
