Quincy Apparel — Christina Wallace (left) and Alexandra Nelson (right) were section mates at HBS and graduated in 2010. Next month they’re publicly launching their e-commerce site for women’s suiting, and are “trying to add sizes where women’s bodies vary the most,” says Nelson, who by the way got her bachelor’s in mechanical engineering from MIT. Both worked for Boston Consulting Group right out of business school, and started working full-time on Quincy last year. “We were looking at the space while we were in school together,” says Wallace, who worked in theater prior to entering HBS. “It came out of a personal frustration that Alex and I had with being in the professional space, and not being able to find clothes that fit us at a mass price point.” The startup—also housed in Birchbox’s offices—has raised a family and friends round of funding and is now targeting a seed round.
