We’ll be kicking off Fall with both Wayfair (FKA CSN Stores) co-founders, Niraj Shah & Steven Conine, of the $500+ million home goods online retailer. Come join us to learn about how Niraj & Steve bootstrapped the second largest online housewares and home furnishings retailer in the US today with over 3 million items from 5,000 brands and until this year had no venture capital investors.
Wayfair employs over 800 people in the US, Canada, Germany, UK, Ireland, and Australia, and goes to market using a number of brands including Wayfair.com, All Modern, Joss & Main.
This will mark the first time that Founder Dialogues invites two founders to speak candidly of their path to success. Moderator Eric Paley sees this as a unique opportunity to dive into the important co-founder relationship that is crucial to building a company.
Prior to Wayfair, Niraj and Steve co-founded Simplify Mobile, an enterprise software company focused on mobile device management, which was sold to Tangoe, and Spinners, an Internet consultancy, which was sold to iXL. At iXL, Niraj was the COO and a board member, and Steve ran the operations in the United Kingdom.
We look forward to hearing Niraj and Steve’s story and believe it will continue our series of inspiring Boston entrepreneurial success stories from home.
