Secret of Success – Milda Mitkute (Vinted)

Milda Mitkute - Vinted

Vinted was born when I tried to solve my own wardrobe problem: a closet full of clothes, but still nothing to wear. My vision was to bring everyone together so we could share our treasures with each other. We aimed to bring technology to the pre-loved fashion industry and solve the customer’s problems of discovery and transaction. Using Vinted, women can buy and sell their pre-loved clothing and find great clothes that others have for sale. By integrating shipping, payments and instant messaging services, we connect sellers and buyers, offering them a very smooth and friendly trading experience.

The best way to grow more entrepreneurs like me would be to create a network of successful entrepreneurs to share their knowledge.

“Entrepreneurs are important to society because our “out of the box” thinking changes the world.”
