Founders Friday with Kat Vorotova (Try the World)
This week we have the pleasure of having Kat Vorotova of Try the World coming by to share her journey.
Try The World is a global online marketplace for authentic products from around the world. Built around an engaged community with exclusive food, travel and cultural content, Try The World curates subscription and gift boxes with gourmet foods from dozens of countries selected by celebrity chefs. Many of these delicious, authentic and hard-to-find products are also exclusively available for individual purchase on Try The World's online Shop.
Try The World was founded in 2013 by Kat Vorotova, a New York foodie born in Russia and former strategy consultant, and David Foult, a French globetrotter and serial entrepreneur. They met in New York while studying at Columbia University and the company grew out of their passion for traveling and discovering great food and new cultures.
Now a team of 30 based in NYC, the venture backed company has been featured in the WSJ, Forbes, CNN and more. You may have also seen their ads on the New York subway or even stopped by their pop-up shop in the Lower East Side!
We'll get a chance to hear her journey plus Q&A and community shout outs afterwards! Also join us for good coffee and excellent conversation.
Until then, stay cool and classy... See you this Friday!
