The company is already doing well and hopefully their business model will take off among other entrepreneurs. They’ve recently sold blankets to Dave Matthews Band, fleece jackets to companies such as Morgan Stanley and logo wear to colleges. They currently only have 23 employees but are hoping to expand to other cities and increase their workforce to 160 people. Oakland, Detroit and New Orleans are on the list of cities they hope to expand to.
You can buy Mojo items off their website. They sell basics like hats, mittens, blankets, and some nice jewelry as well. The proceeds directly benefit the single moms who work for the company by helping to provide free child care and providing them with a good wage. While the company is able to provide benefits for their workers, the price of their apparel is still affordable, for example, the Mojo jacket is only $35.99 and the Infinity scarf is only $15. The company is also currently selling necklaces, the proceeds from which are donated to displaced women and girls in Haiti and ovarian cancer research.
