Susan Feldman: How I Helped Take One Kings Lane to $440M in 3 Years
Tuesday, February 26, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PST)
Santa Monica, CA
You’re invited to an intimate discussion with Susan Feldman, Co-Founder & Chief Merchandising Officer of the uber-popular flash sales site One Kings Lane.
A pioneer in the field of flash sales sites, One Kings Lane dominates the market for home decor, furnishings, accessories, and gifts. Founded in 2009, the site exceeded $200 million in revenue in 2012; employs 350 people; and was valued at $440 million during its last round of funding.
You’ll have the opportunity to ask Susan how she helped to popularize innovative concepts like “tastemaker” sales, in which celebrities and high-profile trendsetters present selections of items for sale; and she drove awareness of her brand through partnerships with outlets like the Bravo TV interior design reality show, “Million Dollar Decorators.”
