About Your Host
Marianne is the Founder and CEO of KNO Global, with a vision to humanize the supply chain and reach 10m factory workers globally.
KNO Global is used by brands such as Target, Decathlon and Marks and Spencer to track worker well-being across their supply chain. The approach starts by building community in the factory, before launching their app and analyzing real-time data.
Marianne started out as a regular consumer when a factory famously collapsed in Bangladesh. She set out to discover who made her clothes, and ended up working on the line at a factory in China. Along the journey she has become a thought leader on ethical fashion.
She recently won She Loves Tech Hong Kong, part of the largest competition for female founders globally. She has raised angel, government and VC funding and regularly speaks on the topic of women in business.
