Founder Story

The founder Child Liberty left his homeland of Africa early in his childhood and moved to America where he lived his dream by working in Silicon Valley and having a great education.

He reached his homeland back after his work in 2009 where he came across children who were not attending schools and taking education due to the reason of not having a uniform at an affordable rate. This led to the reason for the development of the business. They started and were known as Liberty a Justice which soon changed to Uniform.

Did Uniform get a deal on shark tank?

This social enterprise enters with representatives Adam and Child seeking an investment of $300,000 for 10% equity in the company. They have samples of their Super soft tees on the clothes rack. They distribute their samples to the sharks after the pitch is presented.

The two of them are asked about sales and they reply that they had made $40 million in sales with their company Liberty and Justice before the Ebola virus outbreak till 2014. When the business resumed in 2016 they saw that there was a lot of leftover fabric that needed to be used, which they converted into uniforms for children in Africa.

The sharks were impressed by the social mission that the company was undertaking but they were not that interested in investing in the business. Daymond offered them some mentorship if they needed it but no shark offered a deal. Sadly, Adam and Child walked out with no deal.
