My Story – Inspiring Journey of an Entrepreneur Featuring Manish Chandra – Leading the future of shopping!

How do you create a leading social marketplace where selling and buying are simple, social and sustainable? This was the vision Manish had when he founded Poshmark in 2011. Nearly a decade later, the company and its community of 70 million registered users, is thriving. Just this past January, Manish led a successful initial public offering, listing Poshmark on NASDAQ under the symbol POSH.

Manish is the visionary behind Poshmark’s growth and game-changing strategy that combines the human connection of a physical shopping experience with the scale, reach, ease, and selection benefits of ecommerce. He believes that the tech evolution will continue to fuel the success of Poshmark’s social marketplace in the foreseeable future.

. The company’s mission is to put people at the heart of commerce, empowering everyone to thrive. Today, Poshmark’s community spans the U.S., Canada & Australia and its social marketplace features more than 200 million items for sale, with 1 sale made every second in the US.

Join us for this inspiring talk, ask all your questions, learn from the experiences of a highly successful entrepreneur who is known for building and scaling successful companies, and connect with other aspiring entrepreneurs virtually on Tuesday March 16, 2021.
