Profile

Nick Pearce is the CEO & Co-Founder of HoMie, a streetwear clothing social enterprise that launched in 2015.

HoMie uses 100% of its profits to achieve HoMie’s mission of supporting young people affected by homelessness or hardship.

Current Work:
Since 2015, Nick has helped take the brand from a pop-up idea between three friends, to a bricks and mortar retail store that also acts as a base for HoMie’s Pathway Alliance Program - an initiative that sees young people experiencing hardship participate in training, where they gain paid on-the-job experience and accredited learning.

In 2017, Nick was awarded the Victorian Young Achievers Award for Leadership, in 2018, the National Retail Association's Young Retailer of the Year and in 2019, GQ Magazine’s Social Force Award.
