Knix Wear

Every year my school, McMaster University, they put on a student run event, World Congress, which brings many speakers from large businesses, to share valuable lessons from the business and academic world.

This year, a certain speaker caught my eye - Joanna Griffiths.
(who turned out to be my friends, boyfriends, sister!)

"Joanna Griffiths is Chief Knixpert - aka founder & CEO - of Knix Wear, a high-tech women's underwear brand based in Toronto. Always consumer-focused, Joanna has over seven years of marketing and PR experience. She has worked for Universal Music, the Toronto International Film Festival, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and was director of business development for the award-winning social recommendations startup bre.ad.  
In her former life as an entertainment publicist, Joanna worked with some of the biggest names in music, film and television, including Maroon 5, Sheryl Crow, Robin Thicke, Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and many more.Joanna holds an MBA with distinction from INSEAD, where she won the Women's Award for Entrepreneurship and the Business Venture Competition for Knix Wear, securing $20,000 to being the business.  
Joanna launched Knix Wear via a crowd funding campaign in May of 2013 on Indiegogo where she sold over $60,000 in high tech knickers, becoming the most-funded Canadian fashion project of all time. Knix Wear made crowdfunding and retail history, when Hudson's Bay placed an 18-store pre-order, marking the first time a brand has been picked up by a major retailer via crowdfunding. Over the past several months Joanna has been quotes in numerous media outlets, including Forbes, Fast Company, Women's Wear Daily, the Toronto Star, Globe and Main and the Financial Post."

 Her presentation was amazing!
So inspirational to hear how she is achieving her entrepreneurial dreams at such a young age, and how she got to where she is today.
We got the first look at her new campaign video for athletic underwear.
"FitKnix is the ultimate workout underwear, maximizing movement and comfort while integrating moisture wicking technology throughout the garment."
 When you sign up for Club Knixy you get a $10 off coupon - I'm definitely going to order some.
Great product, and even better to support a young entrepreneur.

  11. The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie, not necessarily one of my movies, brings a whole set of unique experiences. Now, through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to hopefully laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time.
