As a fellow entrepreneur, I've witnessed Monica’s growth from a parallel. Having known her for over three years I can confidently vouch for her business intelligence and grit. She is a strong and intuitive leader and has been able to gather a qualified team by her side. I believe in ModaBox’s success and Monica’s ability to lead full force through the next steps of the startup journey. I have no doubt ModaBox will supersede Techstars expectations and be a valuable addition to the program.
I've known Monica for years (from her Limelight days), and she's consistently proven herself a "walk through walls" CEO in all contexts and smart risk taker. She puts together massive projects efficiently with extremely limited resources, inspires those around her, and presents herself and the product impeccably. Beyond the CEO, the founding team brings a lot of muscle to the table- successful entreprenuers with tech chops, enthusiastic and fashion-forward stylists, and industry insiders serving as mentors and advisors. If success is about the founders' ability to execute and inspire, I think they're well positioned.
Beyond that, I think Modabox's market is competitive but no one has brought their aspect yet - female consumer founded; NYC-based; industry connected entrepreneur with proven execution skills in the space.
I expect nothing but the highest success from this rapidly growing company.
