On November 11th, more than 560 people gathered in New York City at 583 Park Avenue for the 2010 Endeavor Gala, which raised over $2 million. Business leaders from 14 countries, top entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists wined, dined, and schmoozed with the greater Endeavor network at this annual event, co-chaired by Clarissa & Edgar Bronfman, Jr. and Nicholas Beim.
Honored as High-Impact Entrepreneurs of the Year, the founding team of Gilt Groupe participated in a panel where they discussed working at a startup, trends in e-commerce, and building a world-recognized brand. Hailed by Vogue as “the online shopping phenomenon,” Gilt provides access to high-fashion and luxury goods at discounted prices.
A live performance by rising star Bruno Mars ended the evening on a high note, with attendees out of their chairs and dancing.
