Naadam is a luxury knitwear company sourcing and producing the world’s finest fibers, while preserving the values and livelihood of nomadic herders

I founded Naadam because I believed there was a better way to build a sustainable brand. We fundamentally wanted to help people, that’s what drove our research and instinct to drive meaningful change. We want people who share our value system of honesty, pragmatism, and transparency to help contribute to it. As we grow, the larger our platform to share our message becomes. That’s what drives me, that’s why we do what we do.

Evrnu is a technology company  transforming textile waste into pristine new fiber

During a routine audit trip in China, as I sat in a smog-filled textile factory conference room, I realized that this unhealthy situation existed in part because of the millions of yards of fabric I had sourced in my career.  I knew then that I had to address this serious problem, so along with my partner Christo Stanev, we founded Evrnu to create a new fiber technology offering unprecedented performance and environmental advantages, now being adopted by the world’s best  brands and retailers.

Tushy is upgrading bathrooms with a modern bidet attachment that conserves resources with every flush

My mother is from Japan and my father is from India and both cultures grew up with the bidet. I never understood why we used dry toilet paper to “clean” the dirtiest part of our body. It became clear that it was time to get out of the 1800s (when toilet paper was introduced to Americans) and into the 21st century. Water is the universal solvent to clean ourselves so my team and I introduced a modern, designer, affordable bidet – this simple device saves 15 million trees from getting flushed down the toilet each year and upgrades your health, hygiene and life.
