WeWork Labs, GSBA, TomboyX, and Flying Fish are proud to bring you our Fireside Chat with Fran Dunaway, CEO of TomboyX, interviewed by Geoff Harris, Partner at Flying Fish VC.
Come and hear from Fran on her startup adventure going from idea stage to scale up, including the challenges, the joys and the overwhelming impact.
Fran Dunaway is a media executive-turned-fashion entrepreneur and co-founder of TomboyX, a Seattle-based gender neutral underwear and loungewear brand launched in 2013. The brand started as a passion project in collaboration with her wife and co-founder Naomi Gonzalez to create the perfect button-up shirt, pivoting to focus on underwear based on the overwhelming demand for their first boxer brief for women.
Fran and TomboyX are driven by a belief that brands can be a force for positive change, and their messaging promotes a human agenda to inspire conversation about gender, confidence, acceptance, and inclusion.
As CEO, Fran has led TomboyX to doubled YoY growth and industry recognition that has included a listing on Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing companies and being named Small Business of the Year for King County, Fastest Growing Minority-Owned Company by the Puget Sound Business Journal and awarded Small Business of the Year by the GSBA.
