MIAMI, May 27, 2021 — FIGS, founded by Endeavor Entrepreneurs Heather Hasson and Trina Spear, went public today at a price of $22 per share. A $3 increase from the previous analyst prediction of $19 per share, showing that underwriters believe there will be significant demand for the company’s stock.
Founded in 2013, FIGS identified a need for better quality alternatives to currently available products in the medical scrubs industry. FIGS aims to innovate the industry and simultaneously launched a philanthropic 1-for-1 program, Threads for Threads.
