About this event

Juliette Gimenez, is a highly passionate serial entrepreneur and currently co-founder of Goxip. She has an extensive experience in starting up companies & driving multi-million dollars sales growth in e-commerce area, particularly from an early stage level onwards in Southeast Asia & HK.

She first started as an i-banker doing market analysis and asset management consultancy for over 4 years. Then joined an early-staged startup in Hong Kong called Ubuyibuy which was a group buying platform offering discounts to customers. The company was later acquired by Groupon and Juliette stayed at Groupon HK as their VP after the acquisition for building and growing to more verticals outside of Daily Deals, like Travel and Products. She was with Groupon until their IPO on Nasdaq in 2011 before joining LivingSocial as the head of sales in Asia. In the new company she was overlooking the operation of 5 countries in Asia which were Philippine, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and South Korea. She was a very hands on person setting out sales and outlining strategies along with strengthening the company’s regional partnership and market share in different countries.

After growing LivingSocial to dominating the Thailand and Philippine market with more than 90% market share, she left to Bangkok and joined Cdiscount Thailand(part of Cnova) - now the No 4 e-commerce pure-player in the world. As a founding team member and also as Chief Revenue officer for CDiscount, she grew the e-commerce site from earning 0 bahts to achieving 400 millions bahts monthly sales within 11 months. The company Cnova was later listed on Nasdaq in December 2014 and become the #2 biggest e-commerce site in Thailand with more 110 employees. In 2016, Cdiscount Thailand was later sold to Big C for an estimated 70 Million USD.
