CEO and Co-Founder of Wander Beauty Divya Gugnani spent nearly 20 years searching for beauty essentials that could keep up with her on-the-go lifestyle.
Divya began her career in investment banking at Goldman Sachs before moving on to private equity and venture capital at Investcorp International and FirstMark Capital. A self-proclaimed ‘accidental entrepreneur,’ she later left the finance world after selling her first business, and, bitten by the startup bug, went on to become a serial entrepreneur.
After co-founding multiple companies and having children, she found her former beauty rituals tossed to the wayside as she became more time-starved than ever. She needed products that saved time in her day, space in her beauty bag and that never sacrificed on performance.
Thus, Wander Beauty was born. Launched in 2015 with Co-Founder Lindsay Ellingson, Wander Beauty brings effortless everyday essentials TM. Each multitasker is co-created with our community and enriched with clean, globally sourced ingredients that work with your skin, not against it.
Divya and Lou have a great conversation about her incredible entrepreneurial journey that has JUST begun!
