EforAll Accelerator Alumna Brenna Schneider has been making news ever since she launched 99Degrees Customs in 2013. On November 7th, Scott Kirsner of BetaBoston (a Boston Globe site) wrote up a great piece on Brenna raising $400,000 in her first round of equity funding. Brenna’s investors included prominent individuals including John and Linda Henry (Owners of the Boston Red Sox), Robert Philips (former Oracle executive), and Desh Deshpande (Founder of the Deshpande Foundation).
In November of 2012, Brenna approached EforAll with her idea of starting 99Degrees Custom, a build-to-order apparel manufacturing company for the me-commerce market that empowers the workforce in Lawrence and Lowell. She was accepted into our 2013 Winter Accelerator Program and was our top winner.
