Imagine taking your love of a physical product & creating an online market place around it making you serious money.
With the rise of tech entrepreneurship many are bridging that gap between the physical & online world with creative marketplaces.
Greg Selkoe, did just that with Karmaloop.com. Greg is the CEO & founder of one of the biggest empires catering to street wear & all things popping in our culture.
Growing up as a fan of hip-hop exposed Greg to the fashions laced on the biggest rappers of the 90s. In the early 2000s Greg realized that the hottest street wear brands were not widely available so he took advantage of the internet to open a small online website that sold a limited set of brands.
Fast forward 15 years later & Karmaloop is the biggest street wear retailer in the game. The company has collaborated with the most sought after brands, started an online media company & maintained Pharrell as a creative director, while expanding in ways people would have never imagined.
Greg's knowledge extends far beyond street wear & he will reveal time-tested strategies in branding, sales & marketing. Whatever industry you are interested in, come & find out how to master every level of your business. This is an event not to be missed!
Don't miss your chance to#bossUPwith one of the best & get answers to real questions.
