Beer with an Entrepreneur #3 – Jane Lu, founder and CEO of Showpo

She turned a free version website into a fashion e-commerce juggernaut, en route to $100M in annual sales. In Beer with an Entrepreneur #3 we meet Jane Lu and Showpo.

In 2010, Jane Lu founded Showpo on the back of a career in accounting and corporate finance. In between the two there was time for a failed start-up in the pop-up store space but Showpo showed almost immediate signs of success.

It’s a story of a laptop, two shelves of clothing in her parents garage – and eventually tens of millions of dollars in sales and a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30.
