For the next iteration of our “Inside Look” series, we’ll be visiting another hot NYC company that’s disrupting and setting industry trends, this time for online wholesale.

This month, we’ll be visiting the newly constructed offices of Boxed.com, a venture backed tech startup that is known as the “Costco of mobile apps” and whose clever ads you may have seen on the subway. We’ll hear from the CEO of Boxed – Taiwanese American Chieh Huang – as well as from employees in business development, operations, and analytics, about what life is like at Boxed, transitioning from MBA/corporate to a startup, and plans for the company’s latest round of funding.

Space is extremely limited for this event, so act quickly. Free of charge; however, if you miss the event without providing notice, you will not be considered for future TAP exclusive “Inside Look” company visits and events. Please sign up for the waitlist if tickets are not available, as additional spots may become available.
