In the News: Nerdy by Nerds: A ShopFactory Concept – Denimhunters

Nerdy by Nerds Jeans on FundedByMe crowdfunding platform

Hand made jeans sewn right before your eyes in a ShopFactory. That’s the concept of Malmö-based Nerdy by Nerds. With a stabile business plan and a great deal of commitment the three friends who coined the concept in the fall of 2011 only needed a little help finding the funds to realise their idea. This is why they submitted the Nerdy by Nerds project to FundedByMe to find people who are willing to invest in helping them establish their ShopFactory. And this fall the concept will become reality.
