SRTX U.S. & Canada Retail & Consumer Tech

SRTX

SRTX is a materials and technology company disrupting the hosiery industry with its impossibly-strong pantyhose.

Launched in 2017, SRTX aimed to solve the problem of women’s tights’ susceptibility to rips and ladders. SRTX is best known for its first technology, Sheertex, a knit made from one of the world’s strongest polymers (used in bulletproof vests and climbing equipment), to prolong the lifespan of tights. Within two years of founding the company, Sheertex shipped its first pair of tights to customers as a direct-to-consumer hosiery label offering a 90-day rip-resistance guarantee. Since then, the company has sold millions of pairs of tights to consumers across the US.

 

Katherine is the founder and CEO of SRTX. After completing her bachelor’s degree in Business at York University in 2011, she briefly worked at ecobee as a Manager of Marketing Communications before starting her first business, ShopLocket, in 2011. There, she built an e-commerce pre-order platform for hardware entrepreneurs looking to bring new products to consumers. After ShopLocket was acquired by PCH International in 2014, Katherine remained there for two years as a Vice President leading the company’s Toronto office. During this time, she founded Female Funders, an online community for female angel investors, and aspiring angel investors to learn, network, and invest. In 2017, Katherine began developing the idea for SRTX.

Katherine was selected as an Endeavor Entrepreneur through the Canada office in 2024.
