Fashion Metric Featured As One Of The Top 50 Startups To Watch In Austin In 2015

I’m a bit late on this one but someone just sent me an email congratulating me on Fashion Metric being listed as one of the top 50 startups to watch in Austin in 2015 by BuiltInAustin.com. We’re in very good company with some incredible Austin startups on the list many of which we’ve either crossed paths with during our time here or seen as inspiration/mentors.

Some of the other awesome startups listed that I think everyone should know about (if you don’t already) are – CrateJoy, Edgecase, EvoSure, Pivot Freight (went through Techstars Austin with us!), and Proto Exchange (also a Techstars alum).

It’s not secret that the Austin startup scene is booming. It is an incredibly exciting time to be here and one of the best things about the entire experience is building a company around so many other passionate and inspiring entrepreneurs. As my old boss (and one of the founders of Sonos) used to say onwards and upwards!

    Congrats & keep us up-to-date on Fashion Metric’s progress.

    FYI perhaps at some point the process used to design dress shirts can be applied to design fashionable activewear as well. I’ve lifted weights since high school and have always had difficulty finding pants / shorts that fit well because they are either too loose around the waist or too tight in the hips / thighs. Elastic and drawstring waistbands are one solution and I discovered Hurley board shorts only a couple years ago. Anyway, best wishes with FM.

    I just noticed your logo – much better without the dangling .COM 🙂

    Thanks @Leonard and completely agreed! Our technology is now available to a very wide range of retailers and brands and I can tell you that some of them are already looking at applying this to activewear so your wish is in the process of being granted!

    We have a very exciting new client, Menguin (http://www.menguin.com) that is using FM to fit people into Tuxedo’s, all online, no need to go back-and-forth to a store.

    Thanks for the positive feedback on the logo, took your advice (and many others) there so thanks for helping in the decision process! 🙂
