George Sun, CEO and Founder of Nextiles,

Reaping What They Sew

"What we do is we create highly conductive and semiconductive fabrics. So these fabrics are still your polyester, nylon, cotton, spandex. They still feel like they still have those properties, but coded around them and on their surfaces are conductive polymers or compounds. But because of that, because we’re making these conductive in my eyes, in an engineer’s eyes, these are now circuit devices. They now have circuit-like properties. And so when you sew these fibers together, and if you sew them in the correct architecture, you get different sensing modalities.”

John Peters is joined by George Sun, the CEO and Founder of Nextiles, a materials science company that has patented the ability to sew circuitry directly into fabrics.  George spoke about the genesis of the company, early challenges presented during Covid-19, and the ability to pivot while navigating a fast-growing startup. George shared some great case studies for entrepreneurs as he explains how Nextiles has been building products for professional athletes and how sports found Nextiles as a solution to a major market need. George also spoke about the beauty of sewing technology and why he’s most bullish on leveraging fabrics as a platform for a more connected future.
