Steve Tidball

Co-FOunder & Chief Executive Officer, Vollebak

Steve Tidball is the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Vollebak, a London based start-up using science and technology to disrupt the future of clothing. Steve started Vollebak in 2016 with his twin brother Nick. Their launch product, a hoodie that works like an isolation tank, landed its own spot on The Tonight Show. They’ve gone on to make pants that last 100 years, ski jackets that mimic squid skin, and the world’s first jacket built with graphene. In 2018 their Solar Charged Jacket was named one of TIME Magazine’s best inventions, and WIRED’s Gear of the Year. Prior to Vollebak, Steve and Nick were award-winning creative directors in advertising, with multiple wins at the prestigious Cannes Lions and One Show. Their work included a basketball shop built for adidas with free shoes on 10ft high shelves, and floating a full sized, fully functional house down the River Thames for Airbnb.
