About Our Company The Company:

We’re True&Co., and we are building one of the most meaningful online shopping experiences ever. Our 2-minute quiz and personal shop is powered by an algorithm and recommendation system that matches women to the right items – all without a measuring tape.
We launched our app featuring lingerie at D10 in May 2012 and Good Morning America featured us the very next day. Since then we’ve been featured on The View, The Today Show, Refinery29, InStyle Magazine, and recently hit the most-emailed articles list of the New York Times. Demand has been incredible and continues to grow given the near-universal appeal of lingerie and unique gifts for our customers. We’re also thrilled to be backed by VC firms from coast to coast, including First Round Capital, SoftTech and Cowboy VC.

We’re working towards the next phase of our product, which include new product releases, features on our app and much more for 2013 and beyond, and we need your help.
