Co-founder and CEO, Thread
Kieran O’Neill co-founded men’s personal styling site Thread in 2012 with $25,000 (£19,000) from seed investor Y Combinator.
Late last year, Thread received $22m (£16.7m) of series B funding, led by H&M group’s investment arm H&M CO:LAB, bringing Thread’s total investment to more than $40m (£30.4m.)
This year, it began to make use of its new funding. In March, it introduced new branding across its site, app and social channels, and 10 new brands joined the site – among them Vans, Reiss and Veja. It is now exploring international expansion.
