The hardest thing about doing an event with Nasty Gal’s Sophia Amoruso is getting her to agree to it. The second hardest thing is finding a picture of her to put on your post promoting tickets, because she so rarely agrees to do any press or events.
Indeed, she tells me that other than a semi-disastrous keynote she did for an industry conference, this is the first time she’s taken the stage as the founder of one of the hottest companies in LA and one of the hottest ecommerce companies in the start up world generally.
In case you aren’t getting the point: You should grab a ticket to this rare sit-down while you have the chance to hear from one of the most uncommon and untold success stories we’ve showcased to date. Buy your tickets here now!
Nasty Gal is an incredible story. You see very few truly bootstrapped ecommerce companies get to the scale of hundreds of millions of dollars in annual revenues. Ecommerce is a logistically challenging business with very real startup gravity when it comes to carrying inventory, cash flow issues, shipping issues and returns, and systems running all of that. A social network only moves around pixels; ecommerce companies move around things. It’s not typically something someone with zero business experience and no venture capital backers takes on.
