Award-winning entrepreneur on the cutting edge of innovation

 

Alexandra Wilkis Wilson has won her acclaim by creating evolutionary, if not revolutionary, new streams of value. She has built 3 companies, exploiting new ways to deliver value to underserved markets and consumers.

The first was Gilt, a pioneer in the retail market that changed the online retailing landscape with respect to sales. The company’s meteoric trajectory is much imitated. In 2016 Gilt sold to Hudson’s Bay Company. Then speaker Alexandra Wilkis Wilson moved on to found GLAMSQUAD. Taking advantage of the Uber-inspired on-demand economy, GLAMSQUAD brought beauty services directly to the homes and offices of busy consumers across the country. She led the company through rapid growth and raised $24M in venture capital for top-tier firms including NEA, Softbank and Lerer Hippeau Ventures. Alexandra’s third venture was Fitz, which after one year in operation was sold to the premier online peer-to-peer reseller of women’s fashion.
