Alex Shadrow, CEO

In the words of Christine Hunsicker who sold her first company to Yahoo for $850 million, "Alex will make it come hell or high water, she will eat through a wall." Alexandra Shadrow is the founder of UNItiques.com: where millennial girls buy & sell fashion from their own closets. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Shadrow inadvertently started her company after a terrifying transaction with a Craigslist creep during her junior year at Boston University, where 2/3 students are now members. With UNItiques now thriving in over 600 cities, Alex has since been recognized by the likes of Forbes and the Huffington Post, speaks as a panelist at Harvard University and many more, and has also appeared on TV as a "winner" of Lifetime's new hit show "Project Runway Startup."

Akshay not only has experience with the latest machine learning and AI-based technologies, but also holds an MBA in Entrepreneurship from Babson College.

OUR STORY

Once upon a time a Valley Girl from Los Angeles stumbled her way into Boston University.


High school graduation is usually a fabulous day. For Alex Shadrow a glorified “Valley Girl” and shopaholic from Los Angeles, it was not so fabulous. She had absolutely no idea where she was going to college or what she even wanted to do with her life. THREE college transfers later, Alex finally found her place at Boston University where she would later create UNItiques during her junior year.


Boston University was Alex’s place. She loved absolutely everything about it, except for the cold weather which she was tragically unprepared for. In her attempt to swap her summer short for winter coats, Alex was starting to realize that the “other” ways to sell clothing DIDN’T WORK.


One day, she came face to face with a glorified Craigslist creeper - and she realized she had just risked her life to sell a goddamn crop top.


And so, UNItiques was born. Alex created our platform for herself, and invited her peers - girls her own age - to join. Soon ⅔ girls at Boston University were members, and Alex began hiring brand ambassadors to spread the word organically.


Her solution soon spread to over 600 cities, surpassing its competitors by selling 5x more inventory. This quickly caught the attention of Forbes, the Huffington Post, and many more.


Today, UNItiques continues to grow rapidly. We welcome everyone, millennial or not to join UNItiques, and enjoy buying & selling on the most successful platform to date. We are also expanding our team and hiring staff and interns.


At the end of the day, these missions keep UNItiques dedicated to continued growth.

OUR MISSIONS

Enable girls to be entrepreneurs by turning their closets into cash.

Make the world and wallets greener by promoting re-use and recycling.
