The push for a movement around sustainability has been gaining significant momentum across the world in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with a rising mainstream interest in upcycling, slow fashion, and ethical consumerism. In tune with the “Make in Canada” initiative, Tangentia Ventures has recently undertaken a round of funding for Clean Planet, experts in sustainable textile manufacturing solutions based out of Scarborough, Toronto. This collaboration furthers Tangentia Ventures’ aim to stimulate the growth of local businesses that focus on safeguarding social and economic responsibilities for a more sustainable future.
“This is a very good time to get into contract manufacturing, we are looking at this as a strategic move to get manufacturing back to Canada and giving back to the community in terms of jobs and opportunities for the locals and immigrants alike”, Says Vijay Thomas the CEO of Tangentia Ventures.
“We are looking to leverage automation and lean practices in the field of textile manufacturing to reduce costs so that we can provide our clients with competitive cost-effective yet reliable localized supply for their garment needs”, Says the cofounder and textile manufacturing expert in the team – Gagan Singh
Akin, the third co-founder in this venture who looks at the marketing and sales for this start-up says ‘Apart from going into manufacturing, we are also looking at collaborating with visionary local Canadian designers and giving them an exposure to the global market by means of an e-commerce marketplace and digital platforms”
