A new book from the co-founders of Gilt Groupe will be released in April, entitled By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed How Millions of People Shop.
The book delves into the story behind Gilt co-founders and best friends Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, who also wrote the book together. It tells the story of how they managed to build the billion dollar start-up while also offering a wealth of personal stories and advice for other would-be entrepreneurs.
Kirkus Reviews says:
In addition to a description of their business model, the authors offer a fine combination of personal stories and direct advice for aspiring entrepreneurs. The writing is clear, but most impressive is the authors’ confidence and exacting attention to every detail. Well-suited to aspiring fashionistas, entrepreneurs and those interested in the wildfire popularity of this online business.
By Invitation Only will be released April 12, 2012.
