Modify Takes Manhattan (errrrr, Shenzhen)
Last week I (Aaron) was in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Saw some amazing sites
We also visited the new Modify factories which was pre-tty dope. We chose our manufacturing partner, The Berkeley Sourcing Group, over a few others for a simple reason: quality. Still, about 1% of me was nervous that there would be some sort of issue or misunderstanding in both the quality of work environment we wanted for the extended team and the quality of work we wanted done. Keep in mind, I haven’t always been a ruthless watch magnate; before Modify I co-founded Refill Revolution, a sustainability startup, with three of my Haas classmates.
I am very, very, very relieved to say that everything looks great. Over the next few posts I’ll share images from the trip. I’ll try to give context for what’s what in the captions. The rest of this post is about the Modify journey, not just the destination…
In the next post… how do we make straps??
