Jaleh Bisharat & Kimberly Shenk Founders, NakedPoppy
It's a marathon not a sprint.
The NakedPoppy story began in the fall of 2017 when Jaleh and Kimberly, both wellness junkies, came together to start building out their passion project: a personalized online boutique that would offer the very best in vetted, luxe and long-lasting clean makeup. Clean makeup is free of the harmful chemicals often found in regular makeup. NakedPoppy's patent-pending technology saves you time by uncovering perfect-for-you, clean makeup picks in 3 minutes. Before co-founding NakedPoppy, Jaleh served as the CMO/SVP of Marketing at companies including OpenTable, Amazon, Upwork and Eventbrite. A graduate of Harvard and Harvard Business School, Jaleh writes frequently for and about women. Kimberly began her career as a data scientist in the US Air Force. She previously led the data science team at Eventbrite and headed the product team at Domino Data Lab. She’s a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and MIT, a marathon runner, and a new mom.
