Description

Join us Thursday, September 21st for a Go Fund Yourself event with Shawn Nelson

Parsons alumni Shawn Nelson founded LoveSac in 1995. He moved to China for three years, first as a church service volunteer, then as a management coach delivering leadership and team-building seminars for Fortune 500 companies speaking Chinese. He won a $1 million investment on Fox’s “Rebel Billionaire” show in 2005 and became President of Virgin Worldwide with Richard Branson’s companies for a time. Shawn grew Lovesac to a 60 store (and counting) chain with an ever expanding suite of patented furniture inventions. Lovesac was named America’s fastest growing furniture retailer in 2013. He invented and launched Sactionals® Lovesac’s industry-disruptive sofa invention. He also holds multiple patents on many product inventions currently in distribution. He earned a BA in Mandarin Chinese from the University of Utah then got his Masters of Strategic Design and Management from Parsons, The New School for Design in NYC. He currently resides in Darien, Connecticut with his wife, 2 dogs, and 4 kids.
