DRAGONS' DEN UPDATE
You may have recently seen us on Dragons' Den. While we did a deal on the show with Kevin, after going through the post-show negotations, the offer ultimately wasn't a good fit. In fact, less than 10% of the deals on Dragons' Den are actually finalized.
Having the opportunity to be part of the Dragons' Den 'family' was an amazing and unforgettable experience which gave us a platform and voice to share our story!
So, we want to put you in the Dragons' chair to help reach our funding goal! And, we're going to reward you for doing so with the perks listed on the right side of this page, including Trend Trunk gift cards, being on our wall of "Our Dragons" and more!
ABOUT TREND TRUNK
How much cash do you have in your closet? Studies show you have $6,000 of clothing and it keeps piling up!

Trend Trunk was created in response to a problem we all have - too much 'stuff'. We've built our marketplace upon trust, community, simplicity, style and service!
Since launching Trend Trunk over 1 year ago we have:
1. Enjoyed a loyal community of tens of thousands of members across Canada, from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island
2. Enabled our members to declutter their closets and make money and add to their wardrobes while saving money, while making it really simple and safe to do so
3. Combined fashion and fundraising by launching Closets & Causes, a way for you to give back to causes you love, without having to reach into pocket
4. Maintained our commitment to being a socially responsible company by supporting hundreds of community events, non-profit and charitable organizations
5. Helped our members reduce their fashion footprint, by allowing them to share their style and re-purpose their fashion
6. Have been a finalist in many competitions, and even won a few! Also, we have been featured on Cityline, Marilyn Denis and much more!
WHERE WE ARE GOING & WHAT WE ARE FUNDING FOR
We've built a world class company, right here in Hamilton Ontario, with customers all across Canada. We want to focus on growing our 3 most important assets:
1. OUR TEAM
We are a dedicated and passionate team of 5, and there always seems to not be enough time in the day. The funds will be used to strengthen areas of our team, so we can automate various manual processes. In addition, some of these funds will be used towards training and certification programs so we can foster personal and professional growth, while ensuring we provide the best product, service and experience!
2. OUR TECHNOLOGY
We continue to invest in building more than just technology but an experience. As such, our tech needs are ever evolving and funds will be used to improve existing technology and enable us to introduce new services to benefit you - our customers! These include:
Our Mobile App
The soon to be released app will allow you to 'cash in your closet' and shop right from your smartphone or tablet, on BOTH apple and android devices. Funds will be used to improve the mobile experience.
If you don't have the time to post your items or have way too many clothes, our Runway Valet service will do it for you. A Trend Trunk certified Stylist will manage the entire process for you, while you go on with your day.
