TRIM-IT is a company dedicated to revolutionizing the barber industry using innovative technology to help enable barbers to do more business. We were founded in 2015 by our current CEO Darren Tenkorang.
A year after being founded, we won the Sussex startup award, and we’ve picked up more awards since. We’re currently based in Shoreditch, London, and have a team of 8.
We believe that men currently spend too long waiting in line when they go to the barbershop.
We saw that as an opportunity to try and create a product that brought organisation to the barber industry and helped consumers as a result by reducing queue times.
Core Team Value
"Like a trim, less is more. Simplicity is key in every aspect of what we do."
We were brought to life after our founder and CEO, Darren Tenkorang entered into Startup Sussex competition where the TRIM-IT App was awarded first place by the Sussex Innovation Center.
We used the £10,000 prize from the Sussex competition to develop our tech and from there we started to grow our business around the Brighton area,
We started developing a B2B queue management product for our barbers, and subsequently raised £350k of angel investment to expand it across London
Now, we're working hard to meet as many barbers as we can and show them why our queue management technology is worth paying for
After going through a few cycles of product testing, we’ve developed a consumer app that men can use to book their haircuts in advance, as well as look reviews of different barbershops and get previews of available haircuts.
We’ve just launched in South London and are expanding across the city this year.
