Outdoor Voices Founder Ty Haney Launches New Venture
The serial entrepreneur shared with BoF how Joggy, a line of energy supplements and balms, is using her web3 platform, Try Your Best, to build community and circumvent challenges faced by direct-to-consumer brands, like rising customer-acquisition costs.
The founder’s surprise return to the troubled activewear label after a sudden exit is the latest twist in a saga that underscores the issue with creative leaders who lack the operational savvy to take a start-up to the next level.
In New York City, leaders from Shiseido, Victoria Beckham Beauty, Aēsop and Glossier joined The Business of Beauty’s executive editor, Priya Rao, to hear her insights on the evolving opportunities in the sector.
In August, the brand began teasing the launch of its three upcoming scents, Closeness, Rivulets and Bright, Hot, with peel-off fragrance strip samples in customers’ e-commerce orders. The scents, which will launch in October, were made in partnership with natural fragrance maker Robertet.
