Amber Venz Box, Co-founder and President of RewardStyle: “[Find] the yin to your yang.”
Valentine’s Day is coming up. And Amber Venz Box knows a thing or two about making relationships work … at work. She’s the president of RewardStyle -- the company she founded with her then-boyfriend, now-husband Baxter. Amber started out as a personal shopper. But she realized that people were buying the products she recommended on her blog on their own … and cutting her out of a commission. So in 2011, Amber and Baxter started RewardStyle. It connects brands and influencers so both sides can benefit. In 2017, they drove over a billion dollars in sales. And launched their app, which attracted a million users in just 9 months. But building her company hasn’t been easy. On the Couch, she talks to us about being an introverted leader, how to network, and what it’s like to build a business with your SO.
Rebecca Minkoff: “Dammit, drag another seat up.”
Anu Duggal and Sutian Dong, Partners of Female Founders Fund: “Investors want to hear what drives you.”
