Qalo

QALO is literally a labor of love for us. We founded the business out of a desire to display our devotion to our wives - it doesn’t get more personal than that! Win did a brilliant job tackling our fears about selling and the direction that might take QALO. From Day 1, they valued the work that we had done in building QALO into the brand it was, but also gave us a clear vision of the brand they knew it could be. And true to their word, we’ve continued to grow (even through 2020), creating a clear brand strategy that has allowed us to expand our product offering and reach new customers, while staying true to what makes QALO QALO. That full package of delivering growth quickly and long-term stewardship is what makes Win so special.

Gravity

Working with Win was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved: developing great products, building a passionate fanbase, and creating and leading an entire category. But the weight and expertise of Win offers us the opportunity to do so much more, and benefit in a way that is only possible as part of a community. We’re thrilled to join the Win family and embark on a new stage of evolution for Gravity.
