Founder Friday: Benjamin Ferencz from FairEnds @ Innovation Factory , Second Floor of the UC

Come meet with Benjamin Ferencz, the founder of FairEnds a sustainable hat and clothing company. This is an incredible opportunity to engage with the founder of a local business that has gone global with its products in under 10 years. We will be meeting in the Innovation Factory on the second floor of the UC at 3 p.m.

FairEnds was born in 2011 out of simplicity, with no logos, no eccentricities and no preciousness. Ben and Martin wanted to make a line of colorful hats that were both urban and western, a nod to their cross-country locations. Instead of “limited-edition” and “exclusive”, they wanted “something for everyone.”

FairEnds hats are made in California and can now be found at stores around the world. And keep an eye out for the FairEnds empire to keep expanding, with new product launches and collaborations planned.
