Poshmark’s Founder and CEO, Manish Chandra, was invited to be a keynote speaker at the European Ecommerce Conference in Madrid, Spain this week, along with companies such as YouTube, Badgeville, Hotel Tonight, Etsy, and more. This amazing opportunity marked a first for Poshmark: first time speaking about the company and our industry outside of the U.S.!
Manish talked about building a successful community, gave advice on innovating around the mobile platform, and shared some of his personal challenges when launching Poshmark. Some of our favorite takeaways from Manish’s presentation:
Thank you to adigital (Asociación Española de la Economía Digital) for inviting Manish to speak and another HUGE thank you to those who attended his keynote presentation (in person or through the live stream). We loved Tweeting with you and listening to your great questions!
Hasta la próxima vez, España! :)
