10 years ago, we started FIGS with a mission to celebrate, empower and serve healthcare professionals. Their days of being forgotten, deprioritized or forced to make do with substandard products were over. We do this in four key ways: 

  1. Product - We create innovative products that enable healthcare professionals to perform at their best while looking and feeling good.
  2. DTC Platform - We use a digitally-native direct-to-consumer platform to get them the products they need in a convenient and seamless way
  3. Connection - We celebrate healthcare professionals by highlighting the incredible contributions they make every day and by telling their stories through our platform.
  4. Community - We bring them together through the community we’ve built.

We do all of this because the healthcare community is that important. If we celebrate, empower, and serve them, we will not only make their experience better, we can inspire more people to become healthcare professionals. Making an impact through our mission is what we’re focused on every single day
