Sean De Clercq – CEO of Kickfurther
Walking away from a half a million dollar deal, when the
business was just four months old was probably the
hardest decision of my life.
Sean De Clercq is the CEO of Kickfurther, the first inventory funding platform for physical product brands. He founded the company to help product brands purchase inventory to meet demand and trajectory without being limited by cash on hand, and improve margin by unlocking volume-ordering discounts. He began his career in supply-chain management company and later growing a merchandising firm where he encountered the financing issues that would inspire founding Kickfurther. He attended the Boomtown Accelerator and in addition to running Kickfurther, Sean also works as an Entrepreneur Mentor at Rutgers Business School.
