Our mission

Faire was founded in 2017 on the belief that the future of retail is local.

We set out to transform wholesale with an online marketplace that provides a seamless and enjoyable buying experience for independent retailers and brands.

Our data-driven approach unburdens retailers from decades-old obstacles by helping find the right products for their shop. Plus, our straight-forward financial terms level the playing field by eliminating inventory risk and providing access to capital—key offerings previously only available to big box chains. For brands, our platform provides powerful sales, marketing, and analytics tools that simplify their business and allow them to focus on what they love: making great products.

Faire is backed by investors including Baillie Gifford, D1 Capital Partners, Dragoneer, DST Global, Durable Capital Partners LP, Forerunner Ventures, Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, Sequoia Capital, Wellington Management and Y Combinator.
