Jane’s the Founder and CEO of the online fashion store Showpo. Showpo’s focus is on being on-trend, affordable and providing exceptional customer service and fast delivery. Jane previously worked in corporate finance, but after returning from overseas travels, couldn’t adjust back to “cubicle life” and quit her job to start her own business. Her first business failed, however, it was a stepping stone to building Showpo to where it is today. What started off with a laptop and 2 shelves of clothing in her parents’ garage in September 2010, through being disruptive in the retail and social media space has made Showpo now a well-known and loved clothing store for girls around the world.
Jane has also recently co-founded a business group encouraging and supporting female entrepreneurship. With the cheeky name “Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine”, this group has now over 34,000 members after just 16 months and hosts monthly free events to promote women in business.
