The Journey of a Founder with Ceanne Fernandes-Wong

Today, I'm delighted to bring Ceanne Fernandes-Wong to the show. Ceanne is a trailblazer entrepreneur and a founder passionate about sustainability, conscious consumption, and fashion. She is the Co-Founder and CEO of COCOON, a circular solution and subscription rental service for luxury handbag lovers to discover and access the widest selection of new season, pre-owned and vintage styles. Ceanne has always been involved with businesses that disrupt and challenge the trends. Her business has been named a top rental destination by key international media such as Harper's Bazaar, Who What Wear, ELLE, Marie Claire, and The Times, to name a few.

In this episode, we had a fantastic conversation about Ceanne's passions, her unique business, conscious consumption, and the blessing and curse of being a founder.

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

  • Why Ceanne’s company is so revolutionary

  • What is a circular model of consumption

  • The three pillars of Ceanne's purpose in business

  • What are the two things every founder should consider before starting their business

  • What the entrepreneurial journey taught Ceanne

After over 20 years in the fashion tech space, Ceanne combined her passion for building things, her rebellious nature, and her desire to educate people and show them different ways of consuming without hurting the environment, which led her to create COCOON. Her goal is not only to convince their customers to be conscious bag consumers, but also to encourage them to rethink their entire consuming habits.
