Apolis: Los Angeles

Apolis co-creates products with manufacturers and directly allows the market to determine the future of each item we produce. It is a hands-on model to provide people access to opportunity. We call it “advocacy through industry.”

In 2004, brothers Raan & Shea Parton, founded Apolis with a simple idea that people can live better lives if they are given equal access to opportunity. Their travels abroad immersed them in personal stories of struggle and survival that inspired them to create a business model that bridges commerce and microeconomic development. Along with their commitment to global advocacy, they also understand the importance of sourcing and manufacturing locally. An average of sixty percent of Apolis’ product assortment is American-made and crafted within ten miles of the Apolis Los Angeles headquarters. Whether it means partnering with manufacturers in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, or around the corner in Los Angeles, the Partons have consistently pursued the goal of empowering people through opportunity.  It’s clear why we love them, and you should too!
