About Us

Our mission is to make it as easy as possible to buy, sell, and discover vintage wholesale. By supporting the people making vintage accessible, we can help make second-hand first choice.

Here are just some of the team members at Fleek. From left to right: Cecilia (Growth), Drago (Supply), Alex (Engineering), Sanket (CTO), Victor (Product), Radu (Engineering), and Abhi (CEO). We also have wonderful team members in the US and India! Find out more about the people on our team here.

 

Our Story

Fleek was founded in November of 2021 by Abhi and Sanket. Abhi has an MBA from Cambridge and a background in building and scaling startups. Sanket’s background is in software engineering, spending his early career at Google before building out software at Silicon Valley startups. 

The idea for Fleek came from Abhi’s time living on Brick Lane - London’s vintage fashion hub. During the pandemic, Abhi made friends with the resellers and store owners in the area where he learned how time-consuming and even risky it was for them to source inventory.

Until now, the used clothing supply chain has been secretive, fragmented, and mostly offline. This keeps the buyers and sellers of vintage wholesale from being able to grow and scale their businesses. 

Working together, Sanket and Abhi created Fleek - a Silicon Valley-backed global market to join the dots, enabling buyers and sellers of wholesale vintage clothing to connect with the full transparency and protection of an online marketplace. 

Abhi and Sanket sold their first bundle in November 2021. As of today, we have hundreds of wholesalers receiving thousands of orders from buyers from around the world. Already, we’re seeing the difference that Fleek makes to the lives of our buyers and sellers. 

We’re constantly striving to improve, so if you have any feedback, or just want to say “hey!”, hit us up: hello@joinfleek.com
