Jane Lu, Showpo’s founder, tells a funny story about her entrepreneurial journey.
You can’t argue with her determination to make her story a success.
With a revenue of over $85 million in 2019, the company set a new high in 2019. That’s a $75 million rise since I did this interview in 2017 (wow, growth on steroids!).
And her goal is to reach $100 million in annual revenue by 2020. About 40% of that revenue now comes from overseas sales.

ABOUT JANE LU
Jane is the Founder and CEO of the online fashion store Showpo.
Showpo is focus is on being on-trend, affordable and providing exceptional customer service and fast delivery. Jane previously worked in corporate finance, but after returning from overseas travels, couldn’t adjust back to cubicle life and quit her job to start her own business.
Her first business failed, however, it was a stepping stone to building Showpo to where it is today. What started off with a laptop and 2 shelves of clothing in her parents’ garage in September 2010, through being disruptive in the retail and social media space has made Showpo now a well-known and loved clothing store for girls around the world.
Jane has also recently co-founded a business group encouraging and supporting female entrepreneurship. With the cheeky name “Like-Minded Bitches Drinking Wine” this group has now 147.5K fans on facebook and hosts monthly free events to promote women in business.
