Deena. You go, girl!
"Wanelo was founded by Deena Varshavskaya, who was frustrated with shopping in traditional malls. Her personal style didn’t fit a simple category and she wanted to shop in more unique places. She decided to create a social network that would make it easy to discover amazing stores and products from anywhere online.
Deena worked on Wanelo for more than two years using her own savings before attracting Wanelo’s first users.
In 2011, she moved to San Francisco and raised funding after 40 investor rejections.
Today, Wanelo is a team of over 30, and millions of people are using it to find and buy products they love."
Took her years. And 40 rejections. She didn't give up. Let that be a lesson to us all.
