James Reinhart, CEO and co-founder of thredUP


Summary: James Reinhart, CEO and co-founder of thredUP, discusses how looking at his own closet several years ago led to what is now the biggest online consignment store in the world, thredUP.  Reinhart and his team over time learned how to make the experience of selling clothes as easy as possible for people who might not otherwise do so. Founded in 2009, the company has been incredibly successful as a pioneer in clothing resale, collaborative consumption, and in providing a concierge service in place of its early days as more of a pure marketplace. ThredUP continues to scale its business of providing like-new women's and kids' clothing at exceptional prices.
