The NYU Innovation Venture Fund and NYU Entrepreneurs Network Present:
How We Built Gilt Groupe and Changed the Way Millions Shop
Alexandra Wilkis Wilson
Founder, Gilt Groupe
Gilt Groupe took only four years to take the fashionista crowd by storm, revolutionize both the fashion and e-commerce industries, attract five million members and earn a $1billion valuation. But its success was far from a sure bet. It all started from scratch when two best friends from grad school noticed a trend, came up with a bold idea and decided to risk everything to share the challenge of their lives. Alexandra will be sharing the story of two best friends who cofounded a startup that catered to their own passions as shoppers and grew beyond their wildest dreams.
