Katia Beauchamp    

Co-Founder of Birchbox

Katia Beauchamp is the Co-Founder of Birchbox; the discovery commerce company changing the way women and men shop for beauty, grooming and lifestyle products. Through its multi-channel platform, the Birchbox experience features personalized sampling, informative editorial content and a handpicked online store.

Headquartered in New York City, Birchbox launched in September 2010 and extended into men's products in April 2012 with Birchbox Man. In September 2012, Birchbox acquired Paris -- based JolieBox, gaining business units in France, the UK, and Spain to take the company global and become the international market leader in discovery commerce.

Katia began her career as an entrepreneur after graduating from Harvard Business School in 2010, where she met Hayley Barna, her Birchbox Co-Founder. Their connection grew into friendship and the pair's collaborative idea for Birchbox inspired the company's debut in September 2010. Prior to founding Birchbox, Katia worked in structured finance and commercial real estate for three years. Katia's love for all things beauty and style combined with her skills from a deal-focused and finance background are instrumental in forming partnerships with brands as well as in growing and scaling the Birchbox business.

A native Texan, Beauchamp has a master's degree in Business Administration from Harvard Business School and a bachelor's degree in International Studies & Economics from Vassar College.
