KYMIRA, the original producer of smart textile woven with infrared technology, has been named by the Kairos Society, an organisation that aims to find world-changers, as one of the world’s most innovative seed stage companies founded by young entrepreneurs worldwide.
Founded in 2008, the Kairos Society began as a small group of ambitious friends who wanted to take on "today's big challenges.” The group now counts more than a thousand members around the world and has raised over $3bn for enterprises. The highly selective program aims to identify the best global entrepreneurs who are going to shape the world.
This comes at an exciting time for KYMIRA as its re-branding sees the company launch a sleek modern design along with some new products that it hopes will become market leaders.
Tim Brownstone, CEO and founder of KYMIRA, commented: “We are thrilled to be selected. The list of firms nominated is an impressive who’s who of leading entrepreneurial businesses from across the world. There is a wealth of talent and great innovation. We’re proud of the part we are playing in that story. There is always room for more support and the kind of advice, investment and profile this scheme can offer participating companies will be invaluable.”
KYMIRA will now have access to Kairos ecosystem, including its global CEO and investor base, the Kairos 50 alumni, and invite-only experiences.
KYMIRA was founded by Tim Brownstone during his final year (2013) at the University of Reading. The primary reason for starting KYMIRA Sport was to bring to market a technology Tim had been researching and developing during his time at University.
The brand KYMIRA Sport is primarily focused on performance and recovery enhancing apparel for elite and lifestyle athletes alike. These products were developed in partnership with a Californian technology company who they still work closely with today to further research aims and exposure on a global scale. Within the first three months of KYMIRA Sport products being available on the global market, direct sales were coming from Australasia, the Middle East, Mainland Europe, the UK and the US, all of which were achieved through organic growth.
