About Adam

Our plan is to fundamentally alter the $100 Billion Menswear Industry with innovative clothing design, modern convenience and online distribution. At Parle IV – we are looking for a co founder to join our team in taking our ecommerce menswear brand to the next level. We already have a local manufacturing operation setup in New York City to locally source and manufacture. We have orders of the product from a small number of paying customers. We’ve shown our prototypes to a significant number of customers who plan to buy the product when it ships. Beta customers are testing, reporting success, and recommending the product to their friends. We launched our website (www.ParleIV.com) last month (October). Our slide deck and executive summary has been completed. We need someone with experience in helping to take Parle IV to investors for seed, angel, seriesA investments. We seek experienced people to guide us through Product Management and Financing. We have a product development and marketing team and technical web developers already building. So we need more of a business developer to bring us in front of investment opportunities. We’ve initiated the patent process. We've already created unique and disruptive category collections that make life easier for the fashion-conscious consumer – our customer. The ideas and concepts are genius, and feedback usually comes in the form of “with the right exposure this can explode”. To start we're debuting a new concept in dress shirts at www.ParleIV.com.
