[PODCAST] Startup Meet Corporate – Episode 24: OnTheGo
On this episode, Gina and Tricia chat about customised apparel.
We sat down to talk with Mick Spencer, founder and CEO of OnTheGo.
A mass customisation platform for apparel and accessories, OnTheGo is used by everyone from local businesses through to the likes of Microsoft and professional sports teams for the design, development, and production of sports uniforms and custom clothing.
The business was founded by Spencer in 2012, as he puts it, in the back of a university lecture theatre. Six years on and the startup in June brought on funding from and launched a joint venture with Wesfarmers’s Workwear Group, which owns brands including Hard Yakka and King Gee.
We spoke to Mick about the origins of the business, its approach to finding and working with customers, and how the partnership with Wesfarmers came about and what it entails.
