Nina Kharey, Founder/CIO
Founded with Resilience
Like many, Nina had to reimagine her career in 2020. In an effort to help with depleted mask and PPE supplies, her company switched over to manufacturing masks instead of luxury womenswear. After meeting with many healthcare workers, she discovered a problem with their scrubs - there was little protection and comfort. Nina spent most of the year developing and understanding the technology needed to make them not only antiviral and soft, but also environmentally conscious. In 2021, she launched Folds, and hopes to bring this innovation to more day to day attire as well in the future.
