Event description
LadyDrinks hosts a mentoring lunch w/ the founder of Joor, an online marketplace connecting wholesale apparel brands with major retailers.

About this Event

After business school at Wharton, Mona Bijoor held several positions in the fashion industry. When she became senior buyer at Ann Taylor, she saw the pain points wholesale sellers faced. As retailers like her employer curated apparel to sell for the upcoming season, the process was still done with old fashioned pen and paper. What if she created a marketplace online where wholesalers could upload their lookbooks, retailers could review the collections , and purchase select apparel at wholesale prices?

JOOR was born in 2010.

By 2016, the company was processing over $10 billion in gross merchandise. Clients included Neiman Marcus, Harrods, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade. Offices expanded to Los Angeles, London, Paris, Milan, Sydney, and Melbourne. Mona was recognized by Crain’s 40 under 40 and Wharton’s 40 under 40, and received the Big Apple Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

Today, Mona has written a book called Startups and Downs, The Secrets of Resilient Entrepreneurs. She interviewed over 50 entrepreneurs and tackles topics such as negotiating with VC's and 'What's the best sales strategy?' Notes from a Nov 2019 talk here

Wednesday January 15th, 12-2pm, LadyDrinks Women's Networking hosts one of its signature mentoring lunches. Three members are invited to lunch with Mona Bijoor, founder of JOOR.
