VP BRAND ACTIVATION STOCKX
The urbanwear trend has grown to become one of the most important in the market. Influenced by American hip-hop icons, the look shapes the street styles of metropolises
around the world. Limited edition collections are gaining awareness in the market, drawing an ever-increasing community to all the places where these rare pieces are marketed
both online and offline. We are looking forward to welcoming Tom Woodger of StockX, one of the biggest online stock markets for cult streetwear items.
StockX is the world’s first stock market for things – a live ‘bid/ask’ marketplace. Buyers place bids, sellers place asks and when a bid and ask meet, the transaction happens automatically. Retro Jordans, Nikes, Yeezys and more – 100% authenticity guaranteed.
- The online sneaker resale marketplace is in advanced talks to be valued at a minimum of $1 billion in a new round of financing, the website Recode has learned
- StockX launched in 2016 and was founded by Dan Gilbert, the billionaire owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, COO Greg Schwartz and CEO Josh Luber
