Xenia Chen is the Founder of Threads, an e-commerce subscription women's workwear and hosiery startup. She has 5 years of experience working in investment banking and private equity on Bay Street and Wall Street and bootstrapped Threads "on the side" when she noticed a gap in the hosiery market for high-quality, comfortable and affordable staples. During COVID-19, Threads was one of the first companies in Canada that pivoted to making reusable masks, launching Threads Helps in April 2020. Since then, Threads Helps has provided more than 80,000 masks to Canadians and Americans, as well as donating thousands to various charitable organizations.
