Denver Cantu

Denver Cantu joined together as a co-founder of Build A Belt with Eddie Saldana in 2013. With an extensive background in fashion, Denver brought her skills and expertise to help build the company to a powerhouse.

Denver went to school and started her career in Miami, FL. After obtaining a degree in Fine Arts, with a focus in fashion design, she worked for a prominent luxury boutique, Ever After for 6 years. Here she worked along side the CEO, attending markets in New York and working as an assistant buyer and business manager for the store. She worked along side designers like Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, and Carolina Herrera. Here she honed her skills as a brand builder, and learned how to research market buying trends that would provide next season profits. Her main area of focus became e-commerce in the early days of internet commerce, and learned tactics at the start of the era.

After moving to San Antonio after Miami, she joined in the startup Build A Belt, working to make the small business into an e-commerce powerhouse.
