Born in 1990 in Lausanne, Sacha Prost is a Franco-Swiss entrepreneur particularly involved in the textile and technology industry.
From a very young age he has cultivated a very strong passion for sport and particularly skiing, hockey, cycling and motorsports.
In 2013, he obtained a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the Glion Institute of Higher Education before embarking on the 8JS adventure of which he is the co-founder and CEO.
From its inception, his sales force enabled 8JS to gain ground by implementing the collections in numerous recognized points of sale across Europe. Among them are renowned retailers such as Harrods, Steffl, Bongénie or even Jelmoli in Zurich.
In 2017, it was with a thirst for innovation and his penchant for new technologies that Sacha launched 8JS into a new era with the launch of their e-commerce website. Completely self-taught, it is alone that Sacha builds their sales platform. The results are immediate, 8JS is on path towards a digital conquest.
Over the years, 8JS has taken advantage of its flexibility and dynamism to collaborate with partners of choice for exclusive collections. Partnerships with Michel Vaillant, Bell Helmets, McLaren Racing, Movember Foundation, Polartec and the most recent with F1, allow the brand to establish itself as a strong player in its industry.
The year 2020, marked by unprecedented events, Sacha Prost is taking advantage of the economic climate to accelerate the implementation of innovative sales processes and is now focusing, in his words: «on the establishment of the 5.0 brand of tomorrow».
