Angel Investment: Kalea Wear

We’re happy to announce that our family angel program (back 70+ entrepreneurs and donate all gains to charity; details here) has invested in Kalea Wear. It is our 12th investment so far (portfolio here).

We really enjoyed meeting with founders Liz Kwo and Alicia Tulsee. They have overcome many personal challenges and have accomplished so much. They truly are entrepreneurs on a mission.

The company sells high-performance and beautiful medical scrubs. People in the health industry often are wearing scrubs and change at least three times a day. They need garments that are comfortable, functional and, ideally, offer some style.

The company has a proprietary fabric that is the cornerstone of their products. It’s quite amazing: anti-stain, anti-wrinkle, water repellent, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and it remains 90% effective after 50 washes.

Kalea Wear has accomplished significant traction with both consumers and businesses. It’s exciting to see. The founders are very focused on impact. Here’s a video of Liz, for example:

Thank you, Liz and Alicia, for letting us invest!  We really believe in you!
