Fran Dunaway of TomboyX inducted into EY Winning Women Program


TomboyX CEO and Co-founder Fran Dunaway has been inducted into the 2017 EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women program. She was one of only 13 entrepreneurs chosen to participate in this year's program and will have the chance to compete for the opportunity to grow and scale her business. Long-time readers may remember that we covered this brand back in 2013 when they launched their initial Kickstarter campaign and we are thrilled to report that the business is continuing to thrive here in Seattle.

"This program not only provides the resources and networks to help women grow their businesses, but also the power of a like-minded community of entrepreneurs with common goals and challenges who act as resources and advisors for one another," said Kerrie MacPherson, Principal Financial Services Office at EY. Participants of the program average 20% revenue growth within the first year in the program and some businesses have experienced as much as a 50% growth by year two.


TomboyX is a Seattle-based e-commerce company that focuses on high-quality, sustainably produced underwear. The brand promise is inclusivity and + body positivity, plus every style they make is available in sizes XS to 4X.

As part of the program, Fran will travel to Palm Springs next month to participate in the invite-only EY Strategic Growth Forum. Over 2,000+ leaders of the nation's most successful high-growth companies will be in attendance to learn from investors and advisors who can offer insight and share strategies for growth.

Good luck Fran! We've been rooting for you since day one!
