S1: Rental market with The Bike Club


A dress for a special occasion, a designer handbag, even curated wardrobes – this episode will look at how retailers are renting their fashion out. But it is not simply apparel that is rentable, we are joined in the studio by The Bike Club’s founder James Symes.

Discussion points in the podcast

  • How to grow a subscription business from renting to friends and family to 50,000 members
  • With reverse logistics being a key part of the rental journey, what businesses can do to ensure this runs smoothly
  • Is the rental market, and the subscription section, going to play an important role in making D2C more sustainable
