DOUBL x Futurpreneur: A BC entrepreneurial success story 

Best friends Jess and Bryn, co-founders of BC-based DOUBL, launched their business to make bra shopping a more human experience, free from arbitrary sizes. With a dream of helping women feel confident in their bodies, they reached out to Futurpreneur in 2021 and received a Side Hustle loan allowing them to create their first prototype.

In May 2024, DOUBL won the $10K prize at the Futurpreneur Growth Accelerator pitch competition, which will help them implement their unique go-to-market strategy.
