‘Simple: the people. Maveron said the same thing about why they invested in Allbirds. We liked that approach.’


Allbirds is committed to making better things in a better way. They do this through an unwavering focus on product development to prove that comfort, good design and sustainability don’t have to be mutually exclusive. First inspired by the millions of sheep in co-founder Tim Brown’s native country of New Zealand, Allbirds launched the Wool Runner in 2016 to accolades such as TIME Magazine heralding the shoe as the most comfortable in the world. Tim and co-founder Joey Zwillinger have a big goal in mind and work tirelessly to change the way shoes and other products are manufactured to become vastly more sensible and sustainable.
