Introducing Jackie Ariston, CEO at Covet.
WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO BE WORKING WITH THE INCUBATE TEAM?
The most exciting part was the momentum that the Incubate program created. The way the program is structured you can really see the progress you make week to week. The guidance and introductions to their network of mentors was something I found invaluable.
WHY DO STARTUPS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP EXCITE YOU?
The most exciting part for me is seeing the idea develop into an actual product and doing things that people haven’t done before. Exploring the possibilities and limitations of technology.
WHO IS AN ENTREPRENEUR THAT INSPIRES YOU?
The Atlassian founders – It’s a great lesson for every entrepreneur that success takes time and grit.
WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION FOR COVET?
The inspiration for Covet was from my own frustration with online shopping. I was constantly finding items I wanted were sold out when I was ready to buy them, or they would go sale somewhere else after I bought it – I wanted an automated solution that put the convenience back into the online shopping.
