Jane Park's parents cried when the founder and CEO of Julep took her two Ivy League degrees and her executive experience at Starbucks and channeled it into owning and operating a nail parlor. With $56 million in venture capital, Jane has taken her passion for girl time and transformed her Seattle-based brick-and-mortar nail salons into a company leading the beauty industry in tech-savvy marketing and development. The stroke of genius that sets Julep apart from its competitors is Jane's focus on combining development and a mix of grassroots and social media marketing to customers in a way that re-creates a social salon atmosphere. The company recently released the "Plié Wand," an innovative nail-polishing tool created with the help of Ideo, and funded by their customers. Up next, Jane plans to expand customer outreach with a social beauty app.
