“BE THE CODE” PODCAST EPISODE 4: Leandrew Robinson
Summary: In this episode, we speak with Leandrew Robinson, founder of Hingeto, a company that partners with athletes to help them build their brands through retail and merchandising. In our conversation, he chatted about his partnership with business partner Marshawn Lynch and his path to eCommerce success. Robinson’s platform is also known for producing the Malcolm X line spearheaded by the iconic activist’s daughters, Qubilah Shabazz, Ilyasah Shabazz, Attallah Shabazz, Malikah Shabazz, Malaak Shabazz, and Gamilah Lumumba Shabazz.
Notable Quote: “[Marshawn Lynch] essentially rides his bike to the office and says, I’m opening up a new store and I need new product and I like your products. That’s when we started to work with him and design new concepts for him,” said Robinson.
