Karla and Leslie founded Alante to create a space that would enable investors, entrepreneurs, and business leaders to come together and reimagine the future of industry, find solutions to pressing global problems and do our part in the fight against climate change.
We believe that by cleaning up the production and consumption patterns of leading industries, we can make substantial headway towards decreasing the negative effects humans have on the environment. And we decided to get started with an often-overlooked industry that touches everyone on the planet… the apparel industry.
Over the past decade, clothing prices have hit record lows while production continues to soar, resulting in an exponential increase in environmental and social costs. The challenges of managing opaque supply chains have allowed for forced labor, unsafe working conditions and toxic dumping to be outcomes of the clothes we wear. Companies are actively developing and integrating new solutions to make the lifecycle of apparel safer, cleaner, more efficient and more sustainable.
We intend to help them do it.
Brand and consumer demand, alongside supply chain pressures, are rapidly driving a shift towards sustainable apparel. Alante partners with brands to understand their sustainability bottlenecks and requirements, informing our process to invest in companies that provide viable solutions.
Investing across the apparel industry into innovations in production, distribution, and waste recovery, we seek scalable solutions that leave lasting, positive impacts on people and the planet. At Alante, we bridge the gap between emerging technologies and apparel brands and retailers, helping to improve efficiency and resiliency across the $3.1tn textile and apparel industry.
