85 Broads is thrilled to welcome Alexis Maybank, co-founder of the GILT Groupe, to Southern California for an exclusive, intimate evening of networking, Q&A, hors d’oeuvres, and VeeV cocktails.
During our conversation with Alexis, we’ll discuss topics including:
•How she and Gilt Groupe co-founder Alexandra Wilkis Wilson turned their passion into an innovative, thriving business
•Why Gilt leads in the growing and competitive ecommerce industry
•The thrills of navigating the NYC start-up community as a pioneering, female founder of a technology company
•How Gilt plans to continue redefining ecommerce and the luxury sector
•Advice on succeeding in the dynamic, challenging world of entrepreneurship
In 2007, Alexis and Alexandra, along with a founding team, created Gilt Groupe as an invitation-only site for coveted women’s fashion. Today, Gilt Groupe has expanded to include business lines in home décor; kids & baby; men’s apparel and gear; artisanal food and wines; vacation travel; local services and experiences, and has founded the leading flash-sale site in Japan.
The event will be held at Soho House West Hollywood. In addition to appetizers, beverages (sponsored by VeeV Açaí Spirit), and an evening of inspiring discussion, all attendees will receive a copy of the book, By Invitation Only.
